Re: Slow Burning, Temperature Stable

I'm biased, Ramshot!

I haven't used the Magnum, yet. PLan to, in the 300 WinMag, soon as I get back to the bench.

I've used X-terminator, TAC, Hunter, Big Game. Love them, very forgiving, and clean.

Right you are.

MY Bad.

H 869 was develouped to replace the old H870, both are ball powders and hodgdon states that
it's good in a wide range of tempertures unlike the old H 870 . But that does not make it an
Extreme powder.

Thanks.

Re: Slow Burning, Temperature Stable

I found a really old post doing a search on IMR7828 from snipershide I think.....A guy tested a bunch of powders over a chrony in different conditions. He didn't fire just a couple of rounds either as he had quite a bit of data. In his findings the ramshot was the least sensitive to temperature. I was surprised 7828 was as sensitive as the reloader powders. From my experience retumbo is very insensitive followed by h1000.
