    I prefer RCBS products. I have other brands that I have bought on sale-used, but RCBS has always worked best for me.

    All I've used so far is varget and a very little benchmark.

    I've got a batch of plinking loads worked up with benchmark for my "match" rifle, but haven't tested them yet. I did load some up with 25grs that shot just under 1moa with my Colt carbine. I got lucky on the recipe, it's the first batch I ever made.

    I have a jug of cfe 223 that I haven't opened yet.

    Cfe 223 is my favorite 8x57 powder with 170's. It smells a little funny, but I have gotten great results. You will love the way it meters. My go to load is 25.0 Imr 4064 under 55's. It is a warmer load, a it would pay to work up from a starting load.

    It is good to know how to load your own and to have the components in case they are ever needed. With that said, if you are loading for bulk, but not shooting professionally, you probably won't see a cost benefit with how cheap ammo is now.
