    The sc version is supposed to be of the same burn rate as the older long kernal powder. BUT the last jug I got of sc was extremely slow burning. (like a good 100-150 fps slower than it should have been). Maybe I just got a slow powder lot. Many manuals say powder rates can be off by 5% and I guess that just puts my jug at the far end of of that perameter. It sure meters nice--it's really hard to load IMR powder after loading Hodgdon and Reloader's short kernals.

    Let's put it this way, you can interchange load data between the two, but they aren't exactly the same.

    Not much of a visible difference between the two.

    That is suprising. I have never had H4831SC vary near that much from lot to lot. I would call Hodgdon on it and see what thy say.

    I buy all my powder in 5-8 lb containers, reason for this is because I don't think powders are as consistent as the makers would have you think!With large ammounts of powder that is the same you will have a lot of shooting consistency within the batch.I also shoot a lot of military surplus propellant, there are many burn rates to meet many loading requirments at a very inexpensive price!!!My $1.

    Good point. What I didn't add is I also buy H4831SC in 8 lb containers for the same reason, but the different lots I have bought thus far (I have bought 1 lb containers on rare occasion) have been very consistant.

    I have 2 different lots of H4831 and 2 different lots of H 4831sc from my testing I would have to say that H4831 is slightly slower than the SC version.
