    I found 10 Lbs of H5010 at a good price but cannot find any loading data. I load for 338, 300WM, 30-30, 222, 30 Carbine, 44mag, 38sp, 9mm lug. Any HELP out there?

    H5010 is a 50 cal stick offering and is about as slow as dirt. The only one I'd think can use it would be your 300 win with 220 grain bullets. A charge around 85 grains should net you 2700-2800 fps with a 220. Work up to this of course. H5010 is a heck of a powder in the 7stw and either 7rum or 300rum. I have burned a good bit of it years past but my stocks of 5010 went bad. H5010 doesn't have that issue; mine was I5010.

    there were a few different numbers for 5010 years back. there was also a T5010.
    im not sure as everybody knew for sure exactly what it was so long as it worked.
    h5010 should be a more modern variety if its packaged in a black jug.
    i have an unopened jug also i bought about 20 years ago as a backup powder for
    my 30x378. im currently using h50bmg in a large 338 and was told by bruce baer
    the h5010 would work well in that also.
