    Must be my day for informational posts.

    Occasionally, I see people post that Varget is very good for insensitivity to temperature change. I came across this article which suggests more factors may play into temperature sensitivity than the powder alone.

    FYI & YMMV

    Very interesting article.
    I might pick a nit or two about the methodology of the way the data was collected but I have no doubt that the reported effect of barrel temp is real and something Hodgdon must not have been looking at regarding their "Extreme" Powders.
