Hodgdon H414

Just curious if anyone loves this powder as much as myself. I use this from my 22-250 to 300wsm and my 257 wthrby mag is a tack driver with 110gr, accubonds. Who needs 10 different powders when I have seemed to get by w/3 all these yrs. ? Just seems to me this is a powder worth bragging on. My go to rifle is a kimber Montana 7mm wsm and it also loves the load I.ve worked up using 139 gr. interbonds. Can't beat it fella's.....That is H414..

It is my go to powder for the 7/08 and is the most accurate.

The downside is that it is heat sensitive and the POI will change with wide temperature swings.

Re: Hodgdon H414

Also I would buy W760 since its typically a dollar or two cheaper and is nothing more than H414 in a different can.

I too like the Win.760 which is the same as H414 in my 300 WSM.64.5grs gives me 3125fps and 1" groups @ 200yds.I shot two deer with this load this year and both were drop on the spot DRT.

Re: Hodgdon H414

There is absolutely nothing wrong with W760/H414 or even Imr4007ssc, all three are good powders to fall back on when you can't find Imr or H 4350, AA4350 is also a good alternative as are ramshot biggame and hunter. If you want the accuracy and speed in your 300 win mag with 180s and want to use a ball powder give supreme 780 a shot or Magpro.

I run lots of rifles+projectiles around the 2750 range. Almost always an accuracy point in my rifles.

If this is a hunting load you gain very little for the last 100fps if you loose accuracy.

2750 is 1000lb at 750 yards, ~3.75 accuracy if 1/2 moa
2850 is 1000lb at 800 yards, ~6,00 accuracy if 3/4 moa

I'll take accuracy any day of the week.

I have H414 but have not loaded it yet. Got it for 284win with 168smk. Got lots of other powders as well but all my manuals like H414 for the 284.
