Thread: Fast burning powder

  1. #1

    Fast burning powder

    Just had one of me rifles (.308) cut down to 18" it is a 1 in 12 twist.I was loading with hodgdon h4895 pushing a 168gr A max at 2704fps at muzzle. I am going to go down to a 150gr bullet not sure what make yet.I just wanted to know what faster burning powder people are using or any advice.

    Many thanks

    Something amiss with the cut-and-paste here, but H4895 is a better choice in .308 than H4350 with any bullet.

    Stick with it, as IMO it'll be even better with a 150gr despite the shorter barrel.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Try some Benchmark in that shorty.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Of course you weren't, but the OP was asking for a fast powder in .308 ..... which H4350 is not unfortunately.

    There is something odd with that list Alliant Re7 is a quick powder not a slow one as it is marked. i read a good article in a NZ hunting mag on reloading for a short (16" bbl) rugercarbine with a mod. Will go and look to confirm, but believe they found H335 best after testing a lot of testing traditional .308 powders.

    No. It's in the right place. The list just got somehow condensed with the second half of the list butting against the first.~Muir

    If you like the performance of the A-Max then use a 155gr. I am using Varget behind mine through a 20inch barrel with good results. I think you will have to sacrifice some velocity with an 18 inch barrel but performance should still be fine at distances you are likely to shoot deer.
