Buy Shooters World Precision Rifle Smokeless Powder (1 lb or 8 lbs) has a burn rate and temperature sensitivity very similar to Hodgdon® VARGET. Temperature sensitivity, burn rate and propellant density closely track with the same characteristics of VARGET. However, our testing reveals that velocity variation at both ambient and extreme temperatures out-performs that of VARGET. This characteristic should benefit those seeking superior accuracy in cartridges such as the 6.5 Creedmoor, 308 Winchester and 243 Winchester.
Those in the long-range game demand low velocity standard deviation, especially when they’re chasing group sizes beyond 1,000 yards. Competitive shooters in PRS Shooting demand Precision Powder. Precision’s ignition characteristics, which contribute to low velocity standard deviation, should benefit those seeking superior accuracy. In our tests from both a 6.5 Creedmoor and a .308 Winchester, Precision outperformed Varget in accuracy.
Precision Rifle has a burn rate that permits use in a wide range of centerfire rifle cartridges.
Despite Precision Rifle being an extruded propellant, we have found good flow characteristics through a volumetric powder dump. The grain is narrow, and cut short. While some reloaders insist on weighing each powder charge, we did not find that extra time necessary when loading for accuracy with this propellant.
