US 869 Hodgdon Smokeless Gun Powder
HP38 Hodgdon Product Overview:
To start with, US 869 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.
Hodgdon US 869 has once again developed an outstanding 50 BMG propellant. This is an ideal propellant for magnum cartridge rifles. US869 is a true magnum spherical rifle powder that is superb for big, overbore rifle cartridges.
US869 powder gives the shooter enough power to use a larger charge of powder to create the maximum velocities in cartridges such as the 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum, 300 Remington Ultra Magnum,30-378 Weatherby Magnum, and others. US869 is superior.50 BMG cartridge that’s great for deer, medium-sized game, and varmints. It offers high velocity and great accuracy with 750 to 800-grain projectiles.
This is an excellent 1000-yard match propellant, and US869 is also unaffected by changes in temperature. These factors are great for shooting top competition and hunting accuracy.
Available in 1 lb. and 8 lb. containers:
In terms of ballistic performance, this Extreme Extruded powder is the exact copy of US 869 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.
