Look, I applaud actual efforts toward temperature stability in powders. I like Hodgdon powders.
I just haven't seen any efforts beyond baseless brochure claims. And if there were any actual basis, I think they would lay it all out for us.
Our shadetree testing has produced nothing more than abstract results. Someone says VV powders seem stable. I found them to be the least. The US869 brochure claims linked were just countered by someone here who tried it. What does it mean? NOTHING.
Standard velocity drops per temperature have held up well with my Hodgdon powders and loads, and I'm glad for that. But the least temp sensitive powder I run right now is IMR4350, and I'm not seeing alot of hype with IMR. Why did Hodgdon buy them?
I've seen Hodgdon discontinue an extremely popular powder without a replacement in the past, only to bring it back later. What are they planning to do with IMR?
I don't trust hodgdon, or their claims. I see them playing on a placebo effect among this hurd, as we believe what we WANT.
