    Has anyone seen this powder?? IMR 8082XBR

    Sorry! That should read "IMR 8208 XBR" !! I have been on the prowl for this powder since January last. It gives top velocities at reasonable pressures but best of all, it has as close to ZERO temperature sensitivity as you can get. Applications run from .204 Ruger to 30-06. (At least that I've looked at... probably more than that.) Let me know if anyone spots a tub of it on your side of the pond. IMR/Hodgdon's says it's been shipping for a while.~Muir

    Hi muir, read a bit about this xbr, haven't heard of any over here unless it's a well kept secret, it sounds like the bees knees, from what I can make out the BR fraternity are creaming their jeans over it, I'm going to field and stream of ashbourne to-morrow so I'll make some enquiries and let you know if there's any around ....callie

    Hi Muir, back again , have been to field and stream, he'd never heard of it , xbr that is, he got on to his supplier, edgar bros at macclesfield, they say it's on "back order" so I've ordered some plus primers plus some imr 3031.....callie

    Thanks,C. I keep hearing that it's on back order but no-one ever seems to just have it in stock to run out of! ~Muir
