Re: 50-70 loads with H4198

Posted by Paul Eshleman on Tuesday, 26 August 2014, at 11:54 p.m., in response to 50-70 loads with H4198, posted by Bill2311 on Tuesday, 26 August 2014, at 5:56 p.m.

I use 23 grains of IMR 4198 with 365 and 515 grain bullets sized to .515 diameter. H4198 and IMR 4198 are side by side on the burn rate chart with the H4198 being a hair faster. H4198 should work fine. Use a wad or 1/4 piece of toilet paper to keep the powder charge against the primer. This load is well under the pressure for trapdoors.
