So what is the story with this powder, is it just in such demand that it sold out all the time or what? Last several times I have been shopping they have had shelves full of varget and other powders that were hard to get but have had zero h4350 and say they haven't had it.

I'm about to run out of it, do I need to just move on to greener pastures or is it going to come back?

I have not seen any in a while either. I had a good stock pile of it, and now I'm almost out. I ALWAYS have a back up powder for H4350 available, and have switched to IMR 4451 now on most my H4350 loads. It works equally good. I sent 1000 rounds of 6.5 Creedmoor to a customer and he was printing sub 5" groups at 1000 yards with it. He liked it a lot, and this was my standard load, not even a custom load tuned to his rifle. 4451 is slightly slower burning than H4350, so the powder charge is slightly higher for the same velocities and accuracy. I like 4451 a lot.

Yes, R16 would be good, also. I don't know much about the temp stability of it, but I know several shooters who run it.

4451
R16
IMR 4350
R17
Alliant 2000 MR (slightly faster burning than 4350, but much slower than VARGET)
Win 760/H414 (same powder)- ball powder with burn speed similar to 4350

All above would be decent for similar burn rates to 4350.

Tested it a bit the other day and only lost maybe 10fps from 16.5° to 108.9°

IMR 4350 is an old school powder. I don't think it's as temp stable as the Hodgdon extreme series of powders, but it's still a great powder. I still load it in my personal 270 Win ammo. It's a great powder, and I would not hesitate to use it for any shooting match or comp, if needed. It's a very good powder.

Thanks, I thought is was of similar burn rate to the H-variety so I picked up a few pounds of it when powder was hard to come by all around. I have been shooting it in my 243 with no issues so ill probably look to it till its gone.

When I die, I want to come back as an 8# jug of H4350. Then everyone would love and need me.

WTH does MURICA mean?

is it ebonex/Redneck for America?

Think Chris Kyle started it. Instead of A-merica.
