Ladder tested it yesterday at 500 yards. 140 gr ELD-M.

Where it is showing me the best node is right around 1.0 gr more than an H-4350 node.

FYI

Anxious to see how your final load compares to the 42.4 of H4350...

It's making speed. The three best in the node chronoed at 2785 to 2820 fps, if memory serves. 24" barrel.

Speed is secondary to me. Consistency is first. Of course the faster the better, but I will keep a consistent slower load, than a less consistent faster load.

I've burned a little over 16lbs of it in 7mm-08ai. It's good stuff.

8 o'clock wind, 2-6 mph, explains the horizontal dispersion.

So how do think it will perform out of a 6.5x55 since 4350 is one of the go to powders for it?

Thanks

It'll do just fine. IMR-4451 is touching H-4350 on the burn rate chart. And IMR-4451 is an "Enduron powder" therefore allegedly very temperature stable, like H-4350.
