    Yes.
    62gr IMR 4350 and a Hornady SST, 2992 fps, and a 5/8" group.
    63.5gr IMR 4350 and a Hornady SST, 3105 fps and 1" group.

    61.0 gr H 4350 and a Hornady SST, no chrono, but 1/2" group.
    Same charge, right after it was a 2" group, but that might have been the jerk on the trigger

    You guys are talking out your hats... The one that's in stock and available that works in your caliber..
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    There is no place in an anti's head where reason can enter. from a Napoleon saying with a tweak.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because that’s the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Oh, no kidding. Every shop in Manitoba is sick of me coming in and asking for IMR 4350.
    I haven't seen any for a year and a half maybe?
    Nothing smaller than 8 pounders from now on.
    I am unanimous in this.

    Awndray, I use WC735 for .223 and have had good luck with it. Higginson is out now but will get more some day and it was real cheap.,

    Silver Heights Archery? They were getting in small batches of various IMR's from Higginson. Not sure what they might have in stock but I grabbed a pound of 3031 or something there a while back.

    They had a pound of 4320 and a couple of H-4831.
    Talked to him about getting 8 pounders.
    He said they'd be a bit over $300 by the time they got there.
    Then there'd be GST and Slimeball Selinger's cut... now it's $350...
    I wonder what shipping from Higginson's would be?

    I live 74 kms from Higginson's and I still can't manage to get what I need when I call them. We have a lot of cowboy action shooters in the region who stock up the moment they have stock. One day. One day I'll pick something up from them. For the time being, it's been Le Baron and BSS.*
