IMR 4831 How sensitive to temp is it?

I was wondering if H4831 would be less sensitive to temperature changes than IMR 4831? One other question how much difference would there be between the two of them as far as velocity is concerned. :confused:

I would say H4831 is a little less temperamental but they are both good in that department.

As for burn rate, Imr is quite a bit quicker and a little dirtier.
Find it
Range it
Click it
Pull it
Dump it

If it's not far, it's boring.

If IMR is a little quicker as far as burn rate by switching I could lose a little velocity, but by being easier to clean that might make it an ok trade off if it does not lose too much. Thanks for the info.
