I hope you accept H4831SC as a "friendly amendment"The first three powders I tried in my .270 are H4831, H4831, and H4831. Then I messed around a bit with H4831. Found a pretty good load with H4831, and decided to stick with it.
Seriously, if it's a .270, why look elsewhere?
Yep. Too much good stuff happening with new powders to rely on the old standbys. mtmuleyFor 20 years I used only H4831 in my 270. I did try out H4350 and RL-22 but didn't find anything better than H4831 for accuracy and velocity. Then I tried RL-26 a couple years ago when it first came out. Got 3100 fps with 140 grain Bergers and groups were just as good as with 4831. I think it's the best powder ever made for the 270. Too bad it's in such short supply. Lucky I bought 5 pounds before it became scarce.
Do you like that hybrid 100? I am going to try to load that for my barnes 130 grains.I'm using Hybrid 100V right now...140grain Partitions are going right around 3000. This rifle is going being switched over to non-lead and I think H4831SC is where I'm going to start.
RL-26 should be able to push a 150grain bullet over 3000fps easily though that stuff may be hard to find.
I like it ok. This rifle isn't the most accurate to begin with but in a 22" barrel Win70 Featherweight it does seem to be fast. After a little bit of research I've decide that RL26 (if I can find some) is my next powder to try in a handful of rifles.Do you like that hybrid 100?
