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!

Re: Hodgdon Benchmark

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.

Re: Hodgdon Benchmark

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.
