    I have used Accurate "Magnum Rifle" powder and can't find it anymore (discontinued). The container says it is compatable to IMR 4831, Hodgson 4831 and Accurate 3100. I have had great success with the "Magnum Rifle" powder and need to either find some old or go with something new. I mostly hunt whitetail, elk, and mulies and shoot from 50 to 500 yards. Thanks in advance.

    I used 4831 for years and it worked well. I've since switched to RL-22 and it works even better. I use non-magnum primers, just straight old Rem 9 1/2 primers, I've had tighter groups since going to non mag primers with my 7mm Rem Mag.

    HTH,
