Power pro Varmint with 69 grain Match Kings

Anyone have any luck with this powder and bullet in 224 or 5.56 Nato? Load data I have found is all over the place.

I've tried Pro Varmint in a 204R and got excellent results with the TNT 39gr.

I tried 26 grains yesterday. Avg velocity was 2760 with a SD of 16 fps. The ten round group was about 1.8" though. I can definitely load a bit hotter with this powder. Although the Varget load I tested with this bullet yesterday performed very well so I may just scratch the power pro Varmint for now.
