    Im thinking of switching to H100v from IMR 4350 in my 6.5-06
    Anyone every use this stuff in their 6.5s or other rifles? Is it temp sensetive or all around good stuff?
    Any feedback would be great. Thanks

    I have used it in a 300WBY with 210gr Bergers and it has been the most accurate load in that rifle.

    In the 6.5 Sherman it will drive 123gr SMK's to 3400. Accuracy was comparable to H4350 with better ES numbers.

    In the 250AI with very heavy bullets it hasn't made a good showing yet.

    Overall it is an interesting powder, worth trying.

    I tried it in my 243 and it seems easy enough to work with. Barnes did a study of some powders for temp stability, H100v was one of them and their tests sowed it to be one of the worst as far as temp stability so I think I'm going to rework that load with a different powder.

    I found the same thing with light bullets in my 257 roy. It produced some suprisingly fast velocities but depending on temp those velocities were all over the place.
