I'm asking because I'm hugely stock-up on Varget. Thanks!
We love it, load it up and see for yourself.

I've got maybe a pound of varget left for loading the occasional hunting round. I agree with others that an adjustable gas plug isn't needed. A waste of money if loading your own.
Varget meters better for Me than 4064's does, my 7.62 M1 rifle also likes 4320 under a 168.
