Very good powder as you say... Lee has a formula for reduced loads... I have the software version but one of their old books had it. With the 300 grain Sierra, 64 grains was good for full power while still being great for reduced loads. I ran the Lee software program and a 300 grain bullet at 1500 fps was 35.6 gr for H4895.H-4895 is a good powder for reduced loads
It's also a good powder for full power loads in the 375H&H also
Thanks for the info, sounds good. Unfortunately though, it doesn't seem like it's available in the uk thanks to our stupid REACH legislation. Neither is Trailboss, although not sure on Tin Star
Any other ideas?
I do appreciate the input, but I'd like to reiterate the design spec here.
There are some great loads shared here, but what I'm looking for is the following:
1.) The lightest possible bullet (low recoil, low wear, low cost)
2.) 2450fps (correct lead for my driven boar practice load versus the hunting load).
Yes, you can do brilliant downloaded stuff with cast bulets at around 1000-1500fps, but that's not what I'm looking for here. The brief is 'full power load - lite'. Lower weight bullet at full power load velocities(ish).
Once again, appreciate the effort put into the response though!
And regarding REACH...IMHO, nothing but a scheme to protect markets. We make and sell the same molecules using the same chemistry and same raw material in both the U.S. and EU and cannot move the U.S. molecules into EU without REACH approval? lol
It has nothing to do with market protection. If a chemical is banned under REACH it cannot be used regardless of the origin.
