What is IMR Red Powder Used For?

What is IMR Green Powder Used For?

IMR Green burns somewhat slower than IMR RED, making it an excellent handicap trap powder and a popular choice among sports clays enthusiasts. This enables the shooter to achieve maximum velocity while using hefty 1- 1/8-oz. target loads. Loads ranging from 7/8 to 1-1/8 oz.

What is IMR Blue Powder Used For?

IMR Blue is a flake shotgun powder that burns slowly. Blue powder is quite adaptable and can be used in shotgun shells of 10, 12, 16, and 20 gauge. True magnum velocities and performance can be obtained using IMR’s load data.

What is IMR 4350 Powder Good For?

IMR 4350 is a medium- to slow-burning propellant that is the preferred propellant for the new Remington and Winchester short magnums. IMR 4350 is the finest choice for magnums with light to medium bullet weights.

What IMR is equivalent to H4350?

IMR 4451, which is part of IMR’s new Enduron family of powders, is one of the better choices. Last year, top F-Class shooter Rick Jensen conducted a comparison of H4350 and IMR 4451 powders, firing the two in a variety of temperatures. His data indicates that both powders have good temperature stability.

What is the Best IMR Powder for 6.5 Creedmoor?

H4350 is a superb powder for the Creedmoor, although Hodgdon’s H4831, IMR 4350, IMR 4831, IMR 4451, W-748, IMR 8208XBR, Varget, Big Game, and W-748 have all proven to be outstanding performers depending on the rifle and bullet. Both Alliant’s Reloader 15 and 17 delivered great results.

What is IMR 4451 Powder Good For?

It is an extruded powder that is ideal for cartridges such as the 270 Winchester, 30-06, and 300 Winchester Short Magnum. The Enduron series is distinguished by its copper fouling eliminator, insensitivity to temperature variations, optimal loading density, and environmental friendliness.

Is IMR and Hodgdon the Same Company?

In October 2003, Hodgdon purchased IMR® Powder Company. For nearly a century, IMR powders have been a mainstay of many handloaders. IMR powders are still made in the same factory, with the same stringent performance objectives and quality assurance standards that shooters have come to expect.

Is IMR Blue the Same as Blue Dot?

This powder functions similarly to Alliant Blue Dot, with the exception that you need more of this powder to attain the same velocity, but not significantly more. If you “work up” with it, this is one of the best 9MM powders you can buy.

What is IMR 4895 Powder Used For?

IMR 4895, originally a military powder used in the 30-06, is exceptionally versatile as a middle burn speed propellant. Accuracy and performance are good across the board, from the 17 Remington through the 243 Winchester to the 375 H&H Magnum. Furthermore, it has long been a favorite of Match shooters.

Can I substitute IMR 4350 for H4350?

Although IMR4350 and H4350 have the same burn rate, they are not interchangeable. I load for two rifles that appreciate H4350 and use IMR4350 load data as a reference because the books I have don’t list H4350. However, I always start at the low end and work my way up, keeping pressure in mind.

What is IMR 4198 Good For?

This fast-burning rifle powder gives outstanding performance in cartridges like the 222 Remington, 221 Fireball, 45-70, and 450 Marlin. It is also outstanding in cartridges like the 444 Marlin and 7.62 X 39. Varmint shooters with small-bore cartridges love it.

Is IMR 4350 good for 243 Winchester?

I also use IMR 4350 in my Encore 243 with a 15″ barrel with no issues. However, I get my best SDs with lesser loads. I believe the short barrel prefers faster-burning powders, although modest loads of 4350 appear to perform nicely. My best SDs (less than 8.0) came from 38.5 grains (5 shot group of).
