H4895 Hodgdon Smokeless Gun Powder
To start with, H4895 Hodgdonpowder 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.
Bruce “B.E.” Hodgdon was the first manufacturer to offer this propellant, and it has grown to be one of the most popular types of propellants for cartridges like the 270 Winchester, 25-06 Remington, 280 Remington, and 300 Winchester Magnum. As an Extreme Extruded propellant, it’s fine quality makes it insensitive to hot and cold temperatures. The same lots produce the same performance.
Available in 1 lb. and 8 lb. containers.
In terms of ballistic performance, this Extreme Extruded powder is the exact copy of H4895 Hodgdon powder. 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.
