    I was using H4350SC and now I find I have a can of H4350 Extreme. It is a SC grain; but is it different or just a new name?

    H4831 / H4831sc are same powders (sc is just short-cut for easier metering)
    same with H4350

    I am slightly mistaken, H4350 does not have 2 versions, just one, its just been updated in its grain length…read

    Thanks to all. I also ran it by Hodgden and they said if the cans came from Australia they were the same. Since I don't have the old can of H4350sc, I can't say if it was from the land down under; but the extreme can is. So I recon they should be the same. Right?

    I'd load some rounds starting low and work up to you load just to be sure pressures are the same. Better to shoot 5-10 rounds then to have a pressure spike. Then you will be certain.
