Stick with 4350 if you can. You won't burn your bbl out and it's given me great speed and accuracy. 6.5 mils to get to 1,000 vs 6.7 with a 140 hybrid
I have seen on other forms that people are pushing H4350 to 43.5, 44 gr and getting good results but i have a delema just like most others, I just can't find it and need to think of alternatives. So I just might have to go to RL-17 until 4350 is available again. And this of course raises more questions in my head and that means trouble for me.. $$ to spent testing and cussing!!
Has anyone used IMR-4350 or RL-19 and if so what kind of results have you been getting? Both are close to the same burn rate as H-4350 or a little slower. Funny thing is in Hornadys book it shows IMR-4350 to have better velocities with a higher change so I'm cerious if anyone has tryed it, and yes bergers manual does not list it. Im Sure it would be a viable option for a substitute.
