I used up 3/4 of my palma gun's barrel life with H4895 because there was no Varget back in the day. Went just as fast and just as accurate (although maybe higher pressures). Once varget came back I tried it. A case full got me my 3000 fps, but it wasn't "better", but all the cool kids were using it so i figured why not.

I'm sitting on more Varget than I will likely use. Let me know if any of you guys are interested.

It works.

I was able to get enough during the shortage. And then when it was over, got more than enough. So I will keep using it.

If I did not have it, I would use RL15 or H4895. I have some of each.
