Hodgdon H4831 Shortcut Smokeless Powder 1 Lb
by HODGDON , IMR & WINCHESTER
Ballistically, this Extreme Extruded powder is the exact copy of H4831. Physically, it has a shorter grain size, therefore, the designation SC or short cut. The shorter, more compact kernels allow the powder to flow through the powder measures more smoothly, helping to alleviate the constant cutting of granules. With the smoother flow characteristics comes more uniform charge weights, while the individual grains orient more compactly, creating better loading density. Grain shape is extruded (stick)
150 gr hornady interloc .19, .21, and .33 all at 100 yrds 270 win Browning Abolt 22 inch barrel. Past January 20 havested a 11 point buck at 300 yards one shot one kill. He dropped in his tracks. Great powder and bullet combination. Looking for more right now.
I use this powder in everything from my 25-06, my 270, my 30-06, and my 7mm mag. It meters ok, depending on the load my RCBS uniflow powder flow meter will shear a grain every now and then. I weigh every 5th load, and I never vary more than .002 grains. Great powder for various hunting loads.
