Of all available rifle powders, Hodgdon Extreme H4895 Rifle Powder is by far the most versatile. This extruded propellant is the perfect choice when reloading cartridges for the .308 and .458 Winchester, .17 Remington, and .250-3000 Savage, among others. Because of the formula, this powder is extremely easy to measure and loads with absolute accuracy.

Initially, this powder was used by the military in .30-06 calibers; today, the company has made it an option for the public. This powder is also clean-burning and backed by a solid guarantee from a company with over 60 years in the business.

Hodgdon Extreme H4895 Rifle Powder 8 lbs is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for the widest variety of cartridges I load twelve different rifle cartridges, so finding a powder that can load as many as possible is important to me - I load eight of those rifle cartridges with H4895. The four exceptions: I load .223 Remington with H322. I load .300 Blackout with Lil'Gun. I load .257 Weatherby with H4831. I load .416 Barrett with H US 869. Notice a pattern? Yep, I really like Hodgdon powders, and with eight out of twelve cartridges loaded with H4895, I clearly love H4895. At the time of writing this, Hodgdon provides H4895 load data for at least as many cartridges as any other single powder. That is a huge benefit for everyone who loads several calibers, or expects to load several calibers in the future. I have also found that H4895 is more forgiving in finding the ideal charge weight than most of the rifle powders that I have tried, and also burns cleaner and more consistently than most. I have rejected Reloder 7/10x/15/17, Varget, W748, W760, TAC, IMR3031, and a few others because they just can't match the benefits of H4895. The consistency of H4895 provides accuracy that compares well to any other powder, and actually beats most other powders that I have tried. (I haven't been able to confirm this, but I suspect that people who prefer Varget don't try H4895 at all!) As an added benefit, H4895 allows lighter charges than most other rifle powders - this helps me load cast bullets at suitable velocities, but would also be great for low-recoil hunting and target loads - http://www.hodgdon.com/PDF/H4895%20Reduced%20Rifle%20Loads.pdf Overall, H4895 is my first choice in developing a load in any new rifle cartridge. Take a look at Hodgdon's load data to see if H4895 might just be the perfect choice for all your needs!
