I see IMR is pushing this new powder for .223 accuracy shooters. I'm intrigued. Anyone know more about it. Little info on the IMR site.

Seems pretty good, I'm not getting the fastest velocities with it but the groups are looking good. I'm not done with my testing yet either though, but I've been liking what I've been seeing so far that I picked up another pound of it while I was at the store the other day.

See my last post here http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=6&f=42&t=323652 8208 trying to make shitty bullets look good

I've been getting mine at a local Cabelas, strange thing is they don't list that powder online. Maybe try calling cabelas?

http://www.powdervalleyinc.com/ shows in stock, both #1 and #8

http://www.grafs.com/retail/catalog/product/productId/178 has #1 but not #8

$ 545,00 later...... I walked out of Grafs this evening with an 8lb keg of 8208. Along with 200 pieces of LaPua .308 brass, 100 pcs of new .5.56 LC brass, 1000 55grain fmj .223 bullets, 300 190 grain SMKHPBTs and. 2 MTM 100 round Case Guard ammo boxes.

Graf's price in reatil store , $ 149.99. Maybe higher on mail order side because of shipping. They got in 250, 8lb jugs 2 weeks ago.
