Thanks for this information.
I just recently received 8lbs of IMR 4198 as it was available.
Lucky purchase for me, cool.

I have found 3031 to be a very nice powder for modern "Marlin Only" loads in the 45-70, both with lead gas check and jacketed bullets. Accurate and good velocities.

In both my 45-70 and 45-120, I found Win 748 to be the best powder and, in my 30-30 too.
I tried 4198 (H4198 only), H4895 and RE15, none of them were as good as 748.
I always wanted to try RE12 but never got the chance before it was dropped from production.

Cheers.
