With powder being so difficult to find right now, I decided to order some FSP-749. This is pull down powder and supposed to load extremely similar to Reloder 15. This came in two 8lb jugs but I only want one of them, so I am selling the other 8lb jug. I am not willing to ship.. local sale only, I'm in the Denver area. $220 for the jug.

EDIT: added pics

To bad you can’t ship it, I would take it off your hands... Bummer...;

Sorry OneShot, good luck with your search!

I had a chance to load up about 30 rounds and head to the range to try this powder out today. Seems to be pretty close to RL15 as stated. I had a several groups (3 shot) with SD's in the single digits so this stuff seems to be pretty good.

I just got some of this powder from Gun Broker. How well does this meter?

Koltz: its a flake powder (which I’d never used up until now) so it just meters okay. I reload with a single stage and almost always use my trickler anyway, so this doesn’t bother me.

Sam: it is pretty similar to RL-15.. if anything maybe a tad slower. I started by using RL-15 load data and then reducing everything by another 10% just to be safe.

Thanks for the info. Have you had a chance to fire any of the rounds you've reloaded with this powder? I've been trying to find reviews on it, but haven't been able to so far. Anything you can tell me about the powder would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Yes I loaded and fired 30 rounds of 270 Win using 130gr Nosler Accubonds in federal cases with federal primers. This is out of a 24 barrel. Starting at 39gr I got an average velocity of 2635fps and worked up to 47gr for an average of 3116fps. Got pressure signs at 48gr and stopped there.

I originally purchased this powder for making M118LR “replica” loads to run through my Rem700. I have not had a chance to test these yet as I just got the rifle back from being rebarreled. I will report back after I get a chance to test.

Awesome! I picked it up to load .223. I have read mixed reviews about their ammo and wondered what the quality of the powder was.
