Re: Hodgdon Benchmark

I have recently switched to Hodgdon Benchmark from IMR 3031 (in a different caliber) for just the reason you mentioned... temperature stability. I have hunted coyotes from -15 to over 100 and the Benchmark is more accurate and much, MUCH better in the temperature stability department.

Just my experience, and good shooting!

    If you go to Hodgdon's website they have a far amount of load data using Benchmark in a 22-250. IMHO their site is worth taking a look at.

    In three different .223's Benchmark is all I use. It has worked great for me in my .223's and it flows like water thru my powder measure.

    I liked the velocities I was getting, but did not get the accuracy I was looking for with 50 and 55's in 22-250. Haven't shot in extreme cold, but have shot in high heat with out problem. One of the better powders in my 223 though with 50-55's.
