    I've been using but H-335 in my 20P. Shoots lights out but, just might have to try some of this 8208.

    I am wondering what shape 8208 is. Long extruded, short cut, fine granules, ball. etc. i am wondering how it meters? I am going to get some and try it in my 20PPC. Samuel Hall

    Sam 8208 is short extruded ,runs thru my culver great. I have been testing it in 20ppc, shoots good with 40vmax.
    I get more velocity with 2520.

    I experimented with 8208 a lot but best accuracy came with LT-32 with all bullets tried in my .20 Practical - mostly use 32 and 40 V-Max, as well as 39 Blitz Kings, H4198 and H322 did better for me as well.

    In my 5 20 tac barrels and one 204 ruger barrel AA2520 was the best in all barrels except one barrel that liked 8202 better. The BK 39 grainers would shoot in the high zeros 5 shots at 100 yards. One barrel liked the 40 grain Bergers. 3800fps in the 20tacs and 3900fps in the 204. One Lilja and the rest Benchmark barrels.

    8208 and N 133 both work well in my 204 and 20P rifles. I was shooting 32 vmax @4200fps in one of my 204 rifles but I was only getting 2-3 loadings out of the Hornady brass and had a lot of split necks. Dropped it to 4100 and the problem went away. ( Unusual for the Hornady brass as that usually holds up very well for me) .
    Now my 204 cases are on their 7th loading and still going strong.
