Thread: one powder for both

    one powder for both

    hi . i am in early stages of reloading .i was wondering if you can use the same powder to load 243 and 308 without it affecting acuracy.i have just bought the 8th edition of hornadys manual and notice that there viht n -140 is listed on there 243 load data and the 308 . is there any other powder you could recomend for this purpose .i would like to load v max 75grain for the 243 and a good bullet in 150 for the 308. cheers

    I use H4895 for .243 and 30.06.
    If you go on hodgon website they list reduced loads with H4895 for youths and cheaper lower recoil practice rounds.

    I use varget with 75grn vmax in .243 38 grains gives me a seriously accurate load and a mate loads both his .243 and 308 with the same powder. Pretty versatile and seems fine with your bullet weight going from the Hogdon data center.

    Hi Toad.

    I now use IMR-4350 for both my .243, and .30-06. It is very consistent from throwing the powder, to accuracy when fired... It is also easily obtained in my area, whereas some powders seems to be difficult to get hold of...

    All the best.

    Neil.
