Hodgdon Powder offers the largest selection of quality smokeless propellants for any reloading application.
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.
It is probably safe to say more big game has been taken with H4831 than any other powder. Bruce Hodgdon was the first supplier to introduce this popular burning rate in 1950. Since that time it has become a favorite for cartridges like the 270 Winchester, 25-06 Remington, 280 Remington and 300 Winchester Magnum. As an Extreme Extruded propellant it shares the fine quality of insensitivity to hot/cold temperatures, as well as superb uniformity from lot to lot
Warning About Smokeless Powder:
Do not exceed the loads displayed in the reloaders guide.
Never mix any two powders regardless of type, brand, or source.
Never substitute any smokeless powder for Black Powder or any Black Powder substitute.
Excellent powder with great temp stability, low ES, great for long range hunting with my 7WSM, Sherman shorts, and 6AM wildcat very happy to finally have it available again!

I’ve used this powder in .270 loads for years. It is consistently predictable in its performance and loads easily. It will produce sub-1″ groups in my highly-modified, 50-year-old Remington Model 721, using 150-grain Nosler ballistic tips and Hornady I would recommend modernarmz.com to any one.

I use this in my 6.5×284 norma to shoot tiny groups at long range. Best powder choice for that round in my opinion.

Powder was quickly shipped and went right to work with my 22 Creedmoor. Fire forming new cases showed consistent results down range. Having purchased 5 pounds, I believe I’m good for a while but I will be ordering again for sure.

This is one of the most versatile powders Hodgdon makes and the Short Cut version meters very well. I feel lucky to have been able to snag a keg from modernarmz!. Thanks
Best powder for hunting as the temperature does not change the load
