Imr 4895

Anybody seen any on the shelves? I have been looking for months! Went into two shops last week and they had every damn IMR version except 4895.. Salesperson said he hasn't seen any for upwards of three years....??? Would like to work up some for my 7-08 and 140 gr Sierra Pro Hunters in my Rem 700 Ti... Have a load that is essentially one hole, MV at 2660 using 4064. Looking for 2800 if I can and 4895 seems the perfect fit for the -08.

Yep, cast bullet manufacturer here also sells some types of reloading supplies. Last weekend they had about 6 1lb jugs each of IMR-4895, IMR-4064, and another IMR powder with a light greenish label, didn't catch the number. Bought a jug of 4895 just because you never seem to see it often, and a brick of WLR primers. I have an 8lb jug already which I picked up a few months back at Sportsman's Warehouse. Also grabbed two jugs of 4064 a couple weeks ago from them. I'm doing OK on rifle powder for now, but will buy more if I have the funds.

What they can't seem to get is pistol powders.

No insult meant but there is your reason that you can't find the powders you want. People purchasing powder just because it is on the shelf when they already have more than they will shoot up in a year or two or a lifetime sitting at home.

There are a many powders that will get to 2800 with 140s in a 7-08. I have done it with H4350, IMR4350, H414, IMR4007 and varget. I have also seen it done with Big Game, MR2000, CFE223, Rl-15 and several Norma powders so I would think you should find something that will work.

No insult taken. I don't know how much you shoot, but that is really not a lot of powder for a 30cal reloader. With the charge weights I use, each pound should yield around 168 finished rounds. I shoot between 100 and 150 rounds per range trip, just out of one 308 bolt gun. I'm thinking of picking up the wife one also, so that would mean more reloading supplies will be needed. It's warming up, and that means weekly range trips.

Re: Imr 4895

It is OK if you are doing a bunch of shooting and using up the powder but I know people and read of people that have hundreds of pounds of powder and are still grabbing everything they can. They will never be able to shoot that much up in two lifetimes. I want even get into those that have horded up thousands of rounds of 22lr ammo. It is as scarce as hens teeth around were I live. Primers are in abundance but you can't find powder.
