I use H-4831SC with the 110 Accubond. With 75 V-Max I use IMR 4064. In my rifle both of these powders/bullets shoot 3-shot groups a little less than 1/2". I was very happily surprised on how well the rifle shot with the 4064.

IMR or AA 4350 or H4831 have been my go to powders for 25+ years. My currant rifle prefers 49 grs IMR or AA 4350, Rem case, CCI 250 mag primer, 117 Sierra pro hunter and averages 3000 fps and averages 1/4 MOA all day.

H4831SC and 115 gr. Berger. Awesome results. I have taken a mule deer at 315 Yards and an antelope at 280 yards with this combo.

H4831SC Here also. Very Accurate and explosive. 115 NBT, 85 gr NBT are my deer and varmint loads. Sierra 100 gr and Hornady also shot very well.

I have, or currently use, loads with 110 AB, 117 SGK and 120 Speer BTSP and Barnes in several flavors. Powders I have used include: H4831, H4831SC, IMR4350, IMR4831, Reloader 19, Reloader 23 and now I"m trying out Reloader 26.

In short, all of the choices that the other posters have given you are good powders to try. What they use works in THEIR rifles. What works in YOUR rifle will be up to you in trial and error. Each rifle is a unique individual when it comes to what works in it. Don't limit yourself to just one powder or one bullet or one bullet weight, try to find a load with the bullet you want to use first then swap out powder and primers until either you find an acceptable load or figure out that your rifle just doesn't like any combination of the components (I have one that can't group anything made by Barnes and the other gives them sub .5" 5-shot groups.

Take any of the loads folks are giving you and check them with a few reloading manuals before you blindly load them up and try them in your rifle. For safety's sake!

In my Browning X Bolt with the 100gr. Sierra P.H. I used H4831sc and with the Sierra 117 G.K. IMR 7828. The 100 gr. shot 1/4 inch groups and the 117gr. had one jagged hole at 100 yards.

My Ruger #1 with 90 gr. Speer likes IMR 7828. I hunt woodchucks only with it.
