Thinking about "Retumbo"

I wanted to know how the new "Retumbo" powder is working for people out in the world. I am planning on running a Nosler 140gn Accu. in my 7mm and I know from past loadings of the seven that a slower powder in an "oversize" case works well. I just fired formed 100 cases and am getting ready to decap, tumble, necksize, prime, pack and load!!!!! I am willing to buy a pound if some of ya are having some decent success with the powder.
Thanks for your help!

I have no direct experience with it, but it is on my next powder order. It has the reputation for the 25-06 (my round) as being a bit too slow and the muzzle flash is impressive. Accuracy is supposed to be very good. Anyway, good luck, I am in the same boat with you.
