    I have a 1lb can of Accurate No. 5 double base that I've had for about a year, (unopened) and I'm wondering if anyone has ever used it. The Accurate load manual for GAP states:
    185gn SIE JHP 6.9gn, 866fps min, and 7.7 894fps max.
    I've never used No.5 before and am wondering if anyone uses it and what are your opinions after testing it.
    Here's what I'm using.
    Once fired GAP brass: Federal 80.7gn, Speer 79.7, WIN 78.9gn. weight empty
    Nosler 185gn JHP .451
    Privi 185gn SJHP .451
    Hornady 185 gn HP/XTP /451
    (total: 2000)
