    I use a LOT of it. It gives decent accuracy and the rifles seem to run just fine with it.

    It actually does well in reduced loads (~20gr behind a 55gr bullet), which is how I use it mostly these days as a plinking load.

    I'm using quite a bit. No issues. I'm just plinking but my RRA still shoots MOA or better with TAC. I've loaded 52, 55, and 62 grain w/ this. I expect it will work as well w/69 gr.

    I tried it...but I liked Reloder 15 better. AA 2230 is also pretty good.

    It works great in both my ARs. I even use it in my 308 bolt gun and it does a great job there also. Meters like water through my powder measure.

    I use it for .223 and it performs great, I also like the superior metering qualities.

    "TAC" is one of the few "good" .223/5.56 that I've not tried either.For those that have loaded a lot of it,as well as H335, WW748,Varget,BLC2,RE 15 ;
    It's really worth a try? Even for bullets lighter than 69 gr?

    I can't comment on accuracy as I have not tested for accuracy. I did shoot some "TAC" in close quarter usage. No problems. It metered well. Seems clean. X-Terminator is a another .223 power they make.

    I found a place locally that has it so that was a big factor. I used one of there powders in .270. I shot .594 MOA at starting load with Remington PSP @200yds. Of course my friend shot sub 1/4 MOA @600yds, so I could only be so excited about my groups.

    I will be trying one of there pistol powders soon. The price per pound is a bit cheaper than other powders (locally). Not sure on the price per load as I haven't compared.

    I have one 223 that loves TAC, it gets its best groups using it. Another rifle does just fine but not as good as it does using Varget.

    iIlike Tac in 223,8x57mm and .308 works great and compared to milsup powders burns much cleaner

    I haven't tried TAC but if my local Sportsman's Warehose ever restocks its shelves, I'll try a pound. It's about a dollar a pound cheaper than AA, and it's about $4.00 cheaper than Hodgdon and IMR and $5.00 cheaper than Win.
