Considering using it in 223/556 with 68/69 gr boolits.
I was thinking of using it as a sub for vihtovouri n140.
It must good it's called "bench rest"

Not familiar with "Bench Rest" I have used :Benchmark" powder and it works well for me.

I do not shoot bullets heavier than 60 gr though.
I have tried that path and I get best accuracy and less drop with 55 gr V-Max.

I looked on Hodgdon sight and No powder by Bench Rest was in the lineup.

Boils down to what your rifle likes.
Try it and see if it likes it with the 68/69 gr .
My research shows Varget and H4895 along with 8208 is what most like with that weight.
