    If the price and availability is the same or very close to Varget why would anyone switch?

    Back in 2013 Varget was nearly impossible to source. I was needing to do load development for a new barrel I was bringing to a shoot in Raton NM. Decided, and brought 2 different loads. One was VV N140 and the other VV N150. Both were chronographed at 2950 fps with 155g Lapua Scenars. No need to ever go back to Varget.

    Cost is the only reason I haven’t tried them. Never heard a bad review though.
