    I have some 4350 I have been reloading for my m77 mkII in .270
    It looks like the 4831 powder seems to get (on paper, not target)a little better velocity with lower pressures. IMR seems even better than the Hodgons. The cost for the powder is only like 20.00 a pound i just dont want all this extra powder lying around i will never use- is it worth it or just one of those things i have to find out on my own?

    I load a lot for my M77 .270. I have used H4350, H4831 and H4831SC. I prefer the H4350 because it feels better to me. I know it sounds weird but I can feel a difference in the powder. I load to fire at 3100fps and use Sierra Game King BTSP 130grn. If you want the recipe send me an email.
