H4831SC Hodgdon Smokeless Gun Powder
H4831SC Hodgdon Product Overview:
To start with, H4831SC Hodgdon powder is an extruded powder in Hodgdon’s Extreme series and it’s safe to say more big game animals have been taken by hand loaders with this powder than any other.
As the kernel size decreases, the powder flow becomes smoother, thus, alleviating the constant cutting of the powder. With smoother flow characteristics comes more uniform charge weights, while the individual grains are more evenly oriented, creating better loading density. H4831 is probably the most popular game in the world and has taken a lot more than any other powder, too. Bruce Hodgdon was the first supplier to introduce this popular burning rate, which is the amount of heat given off by a candle per unit of time, as measured by the U
Since that time it has become a favorite for cartridges like the 270 Winchester, 25-06 Remington, 280 Remington, and 300 Winchester Magnum. With its extreme extruded propellant, it shares the fine quality of insensitivity to hot/cold temperatures, as well as superb uniformity from lot to lot
Available in 1 lb. and 8 lb. containers:
In terms of ballistic performance, this Extreme Extruded powder is the exact copy of H4831SC Hodgdon. Physically, the SC refers to a shorter grain size, therefore, the designation SC or short cut.
Shorter, more compact kernels are designed to help powders flow more smoothly through powder measures. With the smoother flow characteristics, the more uniform charge weights and denser grain orientations lead to superior flash-through.
Don’t exceed the loads in the reloaders guide. Never mix two powders of the same type or brand. Substitute any smokeless powder for black powder.
