    and as others have mentioned it will get good velocity if
    needed. I generally use it for reduced loads for fun at 100 yards
    in rifles. Not position sensitive and no filler needed or desired.

    Mind sharing any 6.5x55, 30-30, 8x57 or 45-70 loads?

    I bought a pound of Blue Dot to attempt to mimic Speer Gold Dot loads in 45 Auto. Before I started that project, I started reloading for 40 S&W, and used up the Blue Dot. I didnít really like the way Blue Dot metered in my Uniflow, so I gave up on it and am currently playing with HS6.
