    Ramshot Magnum is a ball powder. I believe Accurate have ball powders not have no experience w/Accurate powders.

    Ramshot Magnum seems to be as stable as any. US 869, at least the lot that I am using, seems very temperature stable.

    I have no experiance with Ramshot can't get it here and I won't pay an extra 20 to try it. I do however shoot alot of Hodgen and accurate. Some of accurate is ball most of what I use of theres is extruded 4350 id a large grain and I like it . I find these powders to be as good as anybody elses for stability . By saying stabile I will assume temperature resistant. I have used 8700, 2520 4350 no.5 2700, magpro and a few I am sure I am forgetting. I use 4350 as a pet load for my 220swift and the temperature windoe is 3 grains I'm very happy with this load.

    Hope this helps answer your question a little

    Ball powder usualy flows more unifomaly through a measurer and burns cooler.
