H-4350sc ?

Is H-4350sc? the same rifle powder as H-4350?
I found this in my H-L Magazine 2006, that I have been researching.
Can I still use this powder the same as the H-4350 un cut?

And thanks guys.

Re: H-4350sc ?

I guess I didn't know they made H4350 in SC version but.....you should be able to use it the same. The short cut powders are mainly for ease and more consistent dispersion. Just make sure if you already have an established charge and its on the "high side" you start with a lower charge.
Although I would think that the SC powders would create less pressure because the case isn't as full. Then again, the powder would be packed tighter in your case, so............
I know this has been discussed on here several times and I think the general rule is the max charges are the same for reg, sc, and ssc powders.

Re: H-4350sc ?

From what I've read, the formulation of h4350 has been changed a bit over time, along with grain length. I'd also venture to guess they mean new production and not war surp. powder. Remember Hodgdon was originally mil. surp. for most stuff and has had to find other sourcing as mil. surp. dried up.
