    Only worthwhile if you shoot a 50 BMG. Too slow and too bulky for any standard rifles.

    Even though IMR5010, WC860, WC870 and WC872 are only $50/8lbs they are all too slow for almost anything other than the 50 BMG.

    In a very tight squeeze WC857 might be good for the 30-06 but it's better in the 300 Win Mag.

    If you dig around Cast Boolits forum, you can find some data for some 50BMG powders in many rifle calibers, using duplex loads. Even 223. They tread some waters over there that are too deep for THR.
