Last H4895 I saw was June Or July.The Hodgdon Story.
Bruce Hodgdon cut government red tape and soon owned 50,000 pounds of government surplus 4895. After WWII an old boxcar moved to a rented farm pasture served as the first magazine, the first one-inch ad placed in the American Rifleman, and Bruce was in business.
4895 was the powder that served the United States Military and won the war. This powder was used in almost every cartridge - not the 50 cal during the WWII.
Bruce Hodgdon started his empire with selling surplus 4895 which he sold for $30.00 for a 150lb keg.
I have used H-4895 in our .204 and .223 with GREAT success. I have not been able to purchase let alone even see any H-4895 for sale in the last few years.
Has anyone been able to purchase or even see H-4895 for sale anywhere???

None since......probably sitting in a ship offshore west coast that cant dock....
Plenty if IMR 4895 out there though.
Not an extreme powder but its burn rate is very close to H4895 in moderate weather
