I am confused by that post as well. It burns between rl19 and rl22. Both on the slower end but not as far as H1000.

In my mind I don't see it being too fast.

Re: 270 wsm 165gr Matrix data

like I said it would shoot but i dont think it is slow enough. Just my thought. My load development that I have done it has shown that a slower powder is better. In my gun.

H 4831 is a med-slow powder in my 270 wsm. It is best behind a lighter bullet, like 130 g.
It is very accurate with a 135 smk and very consistent, but not very high velocities.
I suppose it will work behind a 165 grainer, but at 2500 to 2600 fps.
A slower powder like Magnum will push the heavy bullets better/ faster.

just my 2 cents.

My bad. I was under the understanding that 4831 was one of the slowest burners out there. It sounds like that isn't the case. I'm most familiar with Hogdens powders.

Any updates on the .277 matrix? Any good loads, bad loads etc.. ? I'm gonna start loading up some 165gr with some h1000 to test when weather gets better.
