Has anyone had any dealings with this powder? I am thinking of giving it a try in my RUM.

Ok no one seems to know anything about this Accurate 8700 powder. So here is the next question. When reloading is it best to choose a powder that will fill the case the most? I have been reading about this powder I mentioned here and it has load data that goes all the way to a compressed load. Is it a good idea to go this full?

I'm not sure about compressed loads, but with standard loads, yes, you want to fill the case as much as possible. This helps with powder burn and increases consistency (consistency = accuracy)

Thanks Mel. That is what I had remembered hearing from Jeff and a couple other guys that know more about loading than I do.
