    What did they replace it with?
    this is or was the most accurate powder in 3 different calibers I have.

    Nothing to my knowledge. MagPro is slower and ball. I'm in the same boat as you and am considering trying IMR 4831. Old burn rate charts show A-3100 right next to it.

    Sorry.

    Why do they keep fixing something that isn't broke?

    AA3100 was made in east europe, and the company that actually made it either went under or simply quit making it. This company was not owned by Accurate, and they were simply a middle man in the process. Don't feel alone as my 270 mag loves the stuff! I tried RL25, and I didn't care for it. Found two bottles of H450, and we'll see how that stuff does.
