Hodgdon H4895 Smokeless Powder 1 Lb
by HODGDON , IMR & WINCHESTER
H4895™ is a most versatile rifle powder. This member of the Extreme Extruded line powder is great for 17 Remington, 250-3000 Savage, 308 Winchester and 458 Winchester, to name just a few. It is amazingly accurate in every cartridge where it is listed in our data. It had its origin in the 30-06 as a military powder and was the first powder Bruce Hodgdon sold to the loading public. Grain shape is extruded (stick)

After shooting a bunch of powders with 142 MatchKings in a HOWA 6.5 Creedmoor with a 22” sporter weight barrel, it seems that H4895 is the ticket for that barrel length. Below is the first three tried at 400 yards with one grain less than Sierra’s MAX in their data for this 142, and with the same primer.

I use 4895 in my AR15 handloads with 80 gr Nosler custom competition bullets to help me hit the X ring at 600 yards
