Can anyone help?
Randy.....looks like most of your questions have been answered, so forgive me if this has already been covered. H570 is long gone and was an extruded powder with the same burning rate as H870, a ball powder, which was also discontinued a few years ago by Hodgdon. It is still available as military surplus and is marketed by Thunderbird cartridge co. in Az., under the name T870. It is a very good powder in the big magnums giving good accuracy, and top velocities in many cases. It is a pretty dirty powder; however. Hope this helps.......Rich
