Been to the range several times lately and each time have tried the Hornady 350RN with N130 and AA1680 powders. The N130 has been my go to powder, but it is now being replaced with AA1680. At 100 yards all five shots are touching. For me that is great. Not just once but on different days I got the same group. It burns very clean and measures very well. Don't use a Lee powder measure because it will leak terribly being such a fine grained powder. I use an old Pacific measure. The #1 and I will go hunting this year. The 325 FTX bullet with AA1680 gives me better than factory loads in the 1895XLR and about the same as factory in the #1.
