Thanks, I pulled that up before…..but i talked to people before that used it a lot…..I’m looking for more hands on stuff as I lost my old data……thanks ag
Have you any experience with Hercules 2400 ? I would like to make a load for 222 Rem Mag ? And IMR 4198 is hard to come by. I have a few older loading books. But they don't list this powder. And I really wanted to try this powder. Even if it is old. It looks fine. Can is in excellent shape. I also have some Old Winchester 748, IMR 4350, IMR 4227, H380. I would say the H380 is the newest powder. My books list the other powders. I just don't have any info on the Hercules. Internet searching I see it was used for 22 Hornet, etc. Is it the same as Alliant ? I would like to try different loads. Shooting from a Rem model 722, 24 inch barrel.I've used a fair amount of AA3100, old and newer, and I never found it to be the same as IMR 4831. Given that many powders' burning rates change even lot to lot, I would simply start 10-15% below and work up a load. I have many surplus and commercial powders that have no loading data for a particular cartridge, and if unknown, once I have a burn rate determined, I just experiment up a load for varied cartridges.
