    Winchester 748. Pretty much anything you can use Varget for, you can use 748. I use it for .223, .308. 30-30, .375 Win, and 6.5 Grendel. Winchester uses it in the majority of their ammo in the popular calibers. It's a nice medium burn powder, meters well, engineered to have a low flame temperature. Back in the late 90's or early 00's I decided to get an "all purpose powder" to cover all my rifle loadings for when/if it became difficult to get. When the shelves are out of Varget you can still find W748.

    Varget has been my first choice "go to" powder for several years.

    I dug through my reloading bible over the weekend and found a 223 load that I used W748 on. They shot well too. Forgot I did that one.
