  • Hodgdon H4895 and IMR 4895 (not the same powder, so make sure you follow the specific loading instructions for each)
  • Norma 203-B
  • Vihtavuori N150
  • Varget powder, also from Hodgdon

Hodgdon CFE 223 is another popular choice, and it’s designed to reduce copper fouling, which is great for the health of your barrel.

RamShot Tac and Alliant RL-15 and RL-17 also get high marks from both match shooters and hunters.

Help!!   Been using IMR4895 for 308WIN for ages. Now cannot find it.

Any equivalents out there but something that is available. And maybe where you bought it??

Thanks.

 

I believe I have 1 lb if you're interested in trading

Try:

  • H4895
  • IMR4064
  • Varget

Favorite light-recoiling load in my M1A is the Speer 125 gr. TNT over 41.5 grs. of IMR 4064. Produced for me a 5-shot group of .925" @ 100 yds. off a sandbagged benchrest. 

Only powders I keep around for the bottleneck cartridges I reload for are 4895, 4064, 4831, 4350., Varget, 3031.
