  1. Mr. B (verified owner)

    8208 has been one of the easiest powders I’ve worked with to get great results. It likes to be filled close to 100% case capacity, and when you tune it right, you’ll get single digit SD’s across multiple loadings on a ladder work up. Great, great powder choice.

    Nothing Better for a 6.5 Grendel

  3. Jay

    Run 25.0 grains of IMR 8208 XBR in my AR 223 with Sierra 55 grain Blitzking’s. Super accurate and temp stable in 100 + degree heat all day in prairie dog towns!

  4. Robert Taylor

    IMR 8208 and 123 SST are the MOST accurate load I have found for both my 6.5 Grendels. So it goes with out saying its my deer load,with many quick clean kills to its credit, five stars!

    I tested with precision bullets MTAC 55gn. The group was .304 at 50 yards. They say it’s not temperature or positionally sensitive. Would probably be a good military powder. As far as cleanliness I do not know never fire more than 20 rounds. 1 in 7 twist 16.5 in barrel HK. One day I will try it in my 1 in 7.8 Obermeyer 20 in barrel

    PV had the powder that I wanted to try in stock. The XBR 8208 powder is very accurate in my 16” AR with 55 grain Hornady SP bullets and I was ringing an 8” steel gong at 430 yards fairly easily with my load.

    Check out was easy and I received my order sooner than expected.
    Excellent service.
