Default IMR 4831...Opinions and uses?

I have never tried any of it but got a good deal on a couple of pounds of it today and bought it. What do you guys use it for and how do you like it? I have used the H-4831sc but not the IMR.

You can use IMR 4831 in just about anything you would use the H4831 in, just be sure to use data for IMR not H4831.

I love it. I use it in my 6mm-06, 25-308, 270, and 30-06.

Use it for my .270, 7-08, 7 mm mag, and my 30-06. I've never had a difficulty using it and my rounds are very consistant. Let us know how it works for you. The sort of rectangular containers it comes in makes it store in my reloading cabinate better than the round Hodgen powders. Small point but something I've noticed.

I think this will work out well cause the calibers you guys listed the most are what I bought it for. 270, 7-08, 30-06 and maybe a few 243's. Thanks a lot!

I've had good luck with it in the 7mm Rem Mag and .300 Win Mag.

Because I don't shoot much overbore stuff, if I could only have one or two powders they would have to be IMR 4831 and H 4831 + (sc) Consistent, stable, accurate- what more can a guy want.

Occasionally a powder here or there will offer a little more velocity, but rarely have I seen a powder that offers such consistent accuracy with good velocity as the 4831 family.

I really like and use a lot of H4831. I especially liked the old surplus military stuff Hodgdon used to sell, as it was a little slower (maybe just OLD) than even the current H4831. But I find IMR 4831 to be too close to IMR 4350 (there is even some crossover between these two in the data of some manuals....) to need both. So, since I use a lot of IMR 4350 in smaller cartridges such as the 7X57mm, I have never tried IMR 4831. Just H4831 and IMR 4350.
