I never hurts to have a bunch of Varget on hand. I wish I had a trashcan full of the stuff. You may want to look at Ramshot TAC or Xterminator as well. Very versatile, and is usually a couple bucks cheaper. I load TAC in my 223,308,and 358 Win. I load Xterminator in my 222, but it works well in any varmint cal. I have tried Benchmark in my 222 and 308, and couldnt get it to group well out of my rifles, I think I will run the rest through my 223 AR.

I used to run Varget in .30 cal but found it lil temp sensitive so switched to IMR4895 and was very successful with 178gr AMAX out to 1000yds, in .223 I will swear by IMR4895 with 55gr pills and lighter, but just made to switch to IMR XBR8208 for the heavier 77gr OTM's and have been very suprised with the results...burn rate is just a hair faster than TAC...in reality just need to find the right combo that your rifle likes to eat.
