Thread: Powder Samples

  1. #1

    Powder Samples

    It's been a while but I'm getting there!

    Heres a list of powders I have for anyone looking to use new powder/bullet combos without having to buy full tubs.

    Benchmark
    H4831sc
    H4831
    N560
    H380
    BL-C2
    H335
    H4350
    Varget
    Winchester 760
    Rel 7
    Rel 12
    Rel 15
    Rel 19
    Rel 22

    The bottles will be in 4oz and cost 18, obviously this is collection only or if I'm travelling about I can bring some with me.
    I will have bullet samples in differing weights and calibres coming soon.

    If anybody has half packs of bullets they don't require please let me know.

    FAC rules apply here of course.

    That's a fantastic idea mate which will save someone wasting the best part of 50 on a tub of powder that their rifle clearly doesn't like! I wonder how many people end up accepting poor grouping rather than try other powders which suit better?
    I may well have some odd bullets!

    Hopefully folk will see the benefits of this MS, 4ozs is more than enough to find a recipe for a load, which saves you a load.

    Indeed! Just as an example, when I changed from a Howa to a Sako in 25.06 I used to use Vectan 7000 in the Howa. My Sako hated it and grouped about 4 inches! I then tried some Reloader 19 which was ok at about a 1 inch group and I may well have accepted it, but I 'borrowed' a little IMR 4831 and IMR 4350 which both grouped at 0.5". I used 4831 for a while but then found my 30.06 preferred the 4350 which I then used for both. It pays to try other options of powder but it can be expensive to experiment! You may well have offered the perfect solution. I did try H4350 once when I couldn't get any IMR4350 but it didn't like that either!

    Afraid not, wish I could have but I'm just too busy, lots of coating, bedding, threading, crowning and re barrels to do, trade and private.
