    Just wondering if anyone has tried this powder and if they like it? It may not be new but new, not sure when it came out.

    I tried e3 several years ago when it 1st came out, they were running a special promotional deal to introduce it. It is good stuff but after the special was over & it went to regular price I went back to 700X, then when Hodgen (sp) bought IMR 700X went up also, so I'm currently using Promo as I got a good buy on 3 --8 pound jugs. If you can get e3 at a reasonable price I'm sure you'll like it, very clean burning & almost the same charge wt. as 700X. Ross Puls

    e3 is an excellent 1oz (and 7/8oz) powder, with some light 1-1/8oz applications.

    It is an excellent cold-weather powder. plus clean, meters well and is pretty economical, but is still costlier than RD or Promo for the same loads.
