Anyone use AA 2015 in 45-70?

I've read some Internet articles of using Accurate Arms 2015 and 350 gr. bullets in my 45-70. Some of the loads seemed rather hot but carried the expected disclamier to start 10% below listed loads and work up.

Anyone out here use this powder and if so, how did it perform?

Over on Marlin talk there seems to be a strong following for Reloader #7. Any thoughts?

Depending on what you are using for a firearm...

AA-2015 From 46.0 grains to 60.0 grains
Winchester WLR Primer

RL-7 From 38.3 grains to 55.5 grains
Winchester WLR Primer

But I like:
IMR-4198 From 32.0 grains to 53.3 grains
Winchester WLR Primer

I use the Hornady 350 gr RN in my 1895LTD 46-70.

My best loading is with VithaVuori N133 powder and a standard primer.

RL-7 is OK, AA2015BR did great (but ran out of it), H332 & 335 were on par with RL-7. 303l and 4198 didn't seem to be as good as the others.
Keep off the Ridgeline
