Shooter's World powder

I did a search but couldn't come up with anything. Has anybody tried Shooter's World Match Rifle Powder in their M14/M1A? It's a spherical double base powder with a medium-slow burn rate similar to Varget and RL-15. The manufacturer's description states:
" Medium-slow burning, high density, double base, spherical propellant. Applications similar to CFE223, Accurate 2520, Reloader 15 and 2000- MR. Yields excellent results in medium capacity cartridges (Match .308 WIN and Match .223 REM class) and certain applications in large bore car- tridges. It is the best choice for target shooters us- ing 69 and 77 grain HPBT bullets in the .223 REM and 155,168, 175 and 178 grain HPBT bullets in the .308 Winchester. Match Rifle has a pressure curve appropriate for use with M1 and M14 (M1A) service rifles."

Unfortunately, the only load data currently out for it is from the manufacturer, which makes me a little uncomfortable.

MidSouth has started to carry it at $19.50/lb.

Hello, I got that same email.
How about you try it out and let us know. You can be the tester... I'm siting on plenty of powder now, no need to add any more to the mix.
Just, remember to start low and work it up.

Almost positive I saw "SW Tactical Rifle " as a powder choice in the Newest Hornady manual, in the .223 / 5.56 sections.... so MAYBE there is some .308 7.62x51 data as well.

Sadly, the manual is not with me.
