Re: H4350 vs IMR4350 30-06 load

I have used H-4350 in several different rifles ranging from 270win to 338wm. it has always produced great accuracy. It will give top velocity at max loads but very few of my rifles get great accuracy at max. With H4350 I usually find a sweet spot about 75 to 100 fps below max velocity and also get very low ES. Great consistency across changing temps too.

On the flip side if you ever decide you want a robust powerful load that is accurate and may certainly be your top velocity producer, you can likely stuff as much Reloder 22 under a 180 bullet as you can put in the case. My past loads with that powder are compressed but man that 22 sure pushes those bullets out fast. I had no issues whatsoever with accuracy or change of impact when the temps varied. Lucky I guess. Re22 one of my favorite all time powders.

Agreed. 22 has always been a top performer.

What velocity at what powder charge (generally) are you achieving? Primer?

Re: H4350 vs IMR4350 30-06 load

From my old data book looks like the following:

180 btip, 61.7 gr Re22, 2799, 2789, 2791, 2798

that is with 210M primer

I have not chronographed my newest loads with Re22 and the Barnes bullets but I'm using the 215M primer with almost the same charge. From range time and targets only, the Barnes bullets are flying flatter out to 330 yards which is the furthest distance I could shoot along side an alfalfa field in Grant Co. KY.
