"IMR-8208" XBR powder

Has anyone used "IMR-8208" XBR powder in a .223 with heavy bullets? I was at the local range today and a guy said he has great luck with it but has not tried it with heavy bullets.

I have been having good luck with reloader 15 and 77 grain Sierra Match King bullets, but always looking for the one that's better.

Also any suggested data for that load? I found the start and end data on their website.

Thanks

Been on AR15.COM discussing XBR and 75/77gr OTM bullets. Many 3 gun guys are running XBR at 23.1gr +/- .2 gr with the Hornady and Sierra 70-somethings. I was using Varget but will transition to XBR based on their recommendations (and easier metering).
