Re: Powder help
Show me the proof Bullet Bumper..
Show the testing, conditions of testing(qualifiers), results, and independent validation of any claims that correlate to OUR field use.
I'm not making any claims about Hodgdon/ADI. You are..
And I'm excited already about the basis you must have for this.
So bring it, please
What is it that America does not know how to do?
Is it shooting Hodgdon/ADI powders?
Cuz I'm just guessing here that we use more of these powders than the rest of the world combined. Who other shoots so much and with so many cartridges, conditions, and sports, than Americans?
Now I hold no basis other than my experience.
I suggest to thread starter that he seek the same basis, because it's possibly the only truth for him.
I probably hold 300lb+ of Hodgdon at the moment, along with many other powders. In the past 30yrs I've shot up twice as much I'm sure. I like Hodgdon powders, and IMR, and I can manage my loads with their performance, specifically w/regard to cold bore accuracy.
IMO, mentioned testing with an implication that Ramshot beat Hodgdon in temp stability, may or may not apply with varying cartridge/load/barrel combos and shooting. But it's interesting info.
I've read a test in this regard where IMR4350 beat H4350 in temp stability. I happened to hold the perfect gun to test it myself, and I did find the same thing -with MY lots.
So I've got a bunch of H4350 I don't use yet, but it might do better down the road,, with another configuration.
So regardless of claims, I haven't seen predictable improvements with powders any more so than primers or bullets. I am the end user, and it falls on me to find the best combinations.
I suspect that no amount of merchandising fluffery will change this, but maybe you can change my perspective.
