    2015 is one of my favorite powders. It has wide applications in medium capacity cases and is listed in most loading manuals. Have you checked the Accurate website?

    It is now simply "2015". Originally 2015BR, it was changed to 2015XMR, and then the XMR dropped. Somewhere in there it was supposedly re formulated and production was moved between Chekoslovakia and Israel.

    I believe it is close to H322, check out the burn rate charts. Now, if you have 2015BR then contact the benchrest boys, you might be surprised what they might pay for that, I have heard.

    My Accurate #1 manual lists loads from 22 hornet up through 458 with the exception of most all the bottle necked mag calibers . PM me if you need data for something in particular
