    Hey guys,

    I've read alot of info on this forum regarding reloading. I have always used IMR powder, mostly 4198. No one else ever mentions it. Am I missing something here? I'd be glad to switch if something is better. TIA Good Shooting! Eric

    I've also been using 25 grs of IMR 4895 with a 55 gr bullet. Good load and functions perfectly.
