    I thought this was something you put in your powder to make it last longer. My bad.

    First I've heard of it. Like @blake711 I was kinda' expecting a punch line. Keep us posted. I don't know where I would store just one more jug of powder, but ...

    I'm using RL-17 on the .243WSSM and the H-4350 in the 30-06.
    Both are hunting calibers for me. I don't hunt in the heat, only in the cool/cold so sight in at whatever you want.
    If your going to hunt in the heat of Africa in the summer, zero the rounds for heat, Alaska, zero for cold. That's why you see these folks on TV and magazines zero their weapons when they get to the hunting areas. Altitude, humidity, etc also play into accuracy.
    There will never be a powder developed that will do everything. Work with what is the most accurate for your gun and quit trying to find the powder that does it all, because there isn't one.

    Some are closer to doing it all than others and this could be the first ball powder that is close enough to compete with some of the sticks.
