Hodgdon Powder



Mfg Part#



Hodgdon Extreme Varget Rifle Powder is the first revolutionary extruded propellant made with small grains that offer uniform and easy metering. This powder is also insensitive to both hot and cold temperatures and boasts higher energy that improves velocities compared to other fast-burning powders on the market.

In addition, this clean-burning powder features easy ignition and outstanding accuracy that ensures higher scores for competitive shooters and one-shot kills for big game hunters. While the powder works with various cartridges, it is popular for heavy bullets and the .223 Remington.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An extremely versatile powder . Varget is a powder that is usually associated with 223 and 308 Win . match ammunition , and it excels in that capacity , however , I have found that it is also an excellent powder for 45-70 Government . Varget gives very good accuracy and velocity at about a third less pressure than the faster burning powders normally used with the 45-70 . It gives me quarter-sized groups out of two Marlin 1895's at one hundred yards with jacketed and cast lead bullets . I highly recommend this powder ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical This is the best powder I've ever used in my 223 hand loads. Behind a 55gr pill it is capable of spectacular less than MOA results. It seems to be insinsitive to tempature, hot/cold doesn't matter. Same sub-MOA. I use this load in semi-auto's and bolt guns without any function issues. My niece, who doesn't shoot much, printed this 6 round target. I would like to see Hodgdon offer this powder in a short cut version also.
