Hello All,

I'm having a hard time finding reloading data for a 350 gr. gas checked bullet using H4895.  I'd like to see muzzle velocities of around 1600-1800 fps.  I've also heard pressures are fairly low with this powder.  Any ideas?

Thanks,
DAW

The reason you don't find loads using this powder is it is too slow burning for a 45-70 in that velocity range. Inconsistent ignition and questionable accuracy will be the result. Look for loads with 2400, Unique, SR4759, IMR&H4198, IMR 4227, and Re#7. You have to select a burning rate for a low load density. Check out loadswap.com or a Lyman Cast reloading manual as well. IMR 4895 is a recommended powder for 500gr Jacketed for Ruger loads.

Hey Ruger#3, just had to ask if you shot a Ruger#3 and if so what cal.
I have one in .375 BB that i just had restocked with English Walnut, looks nice.
Still working on loads with 200gr. Pro-Hunter and 43gr. H-335 best load to date. Also 36gr Rl#7 and the 220 Honady is ok.
