I need a clean powder that meters well 55gr bullets
AA2230 hands down. Clean, accurate and meters like a water.
While I like Varget too, as an extruded powder it doesn't meter that great. I use Varget only for heavy bullets and long range rifle shooting. For my carbines it is all AA2230

While I prefer H335, I have used a lot of AA2230 and it is good with 55 gr bullets.

H335 is a clean, and very accurate powder I have come to love for my 55 grain 223 loads

I really like H4895. Clean enough for me. The H4895 "60%" rule applies to the AR-15 platform really well for a very clean running plinking round in my experience.

H335 is more accurate than Varget in my rifles, and meters better in my measure. YMMV.
I am Pro-Rights (on gun issues).
