    I stopped using it because my fingers don't like to work well with adding it. I just changed the powder type to fill the case more so I did not have to use it. But it really works. I had some extremely accurate loads for my 308win but I HAD to use the dacron. Otherwise it was click............bang. And no one here has even brought up temp. I also had loads that were perfectly fine in 70*+ temps. But use that same load below 50* and it was a click..........bang. That was what led me to the dacron by talking with Larry about what was going on.

    Just had a click bang with a jacketed load using ball powder and a standard primer. It's my standard prairie dog load. Standard primers give better accuracy for me in the summer and has been 100% reliable. The click bang temp at was a minus 17 actual out calling coyotes.

    That is why they say to use a mag primer with ball.
