I think it was $8/ lb and 32 pounds from High Power ~ 10 years ago, calling it 60's IMR4895 pull down powder.
When Hodgdon started out, they wanted 10 cents/pound in quality for IMR4895. I have their price sheet.
It is much faster than IMR4895 or even H4895.
The velocity, pressure threshold for brass yield, and density match H322.
So I call it H322 in Quickload, and that will predict velocity over the chronograph.
The grain size, .033" diameter x .058" match IMR4895.
