This is the Magnum Pistol Powder in the IMR lineup. If it says Magnum, IMR 4227 is the choice for true magnum velocities and performance. In rifles this powder delivers excellent velocity and accuracy in such cartridges as the 22 Hornet and 221 Fireball.
This fine, extruded propellant is the first in the series of Enduron Technology powders. The main features of the Enduron series are copper fouling eliminator, insensitivity to temperature changes, ideal loading density and being environmentally friendly. IMR 4166 is the perfect burn speed for cartridges like the 308 Win/7.62mm NATO, 22-250 Remington, 257 Roberts and dozens more. Positively, a versatile, match grade propellant.
Another new Enduron extruded powder, IMR 4451, gives top performance in the venerable 30-06, 270 Winchester and 300 Winchester Short Magnum, to name just a few. This propellant is ideally suited for many, many mid-range burn speed cartridges. Simply scroll through the list of cartridges on the Hodgdon Reloading Data Center, and see how many of your favorite cartridges are covered with this fine powder. Once the shooter tries this one in that favorite cartridge, his search is over!
This new Enduron® Extruded powder is a top performer with such great cartridges as the 270 Winchester, 25-06 Remington 280 Remington and 300 Winchester Magnum and many many more. It falls directly between IMR 4451 and IMR 7977 in burn speed, providing top performance for all cartridges used for big game. As with all Enduron® powders, it is temperature insensitive, clean burning, minimizes copper fouling and is totally safe for the environment. Adding this propellant to the Enduron®line filled in an important place in the chart. IMR 4955 , plus the original three, provides top loading for cartridges from 223 Remington to the massive 500 Nitro Express Magnum.
The slowest burn rate Enduron Technology extruded powder is IMR 7977, and is a true magnum cartridge propellant. It yields outstanding performance in such cartridges as the 300 Winchester Magnum, 7mm Remington Magnum, 338 Lapua and a host of others. Loading density is perfect for magnums, nicely filling the case at maximum charges, contributing to superb uniformity and accuracy. The 7mm Remington Magnum “never had it so good”!
This fast burning rifle powder gives outstanding performance in cartridges like the 222 Remington, 221 Fireball, 45-70, and 450 Marlin. Varmint shooters with small-bore cartridges love it. Proven metering and necessary elements were added to make it extremely insensitive to hot/cold temperatures. IMR 4198 is outstanding in cartridges like the 222 Remington, 444 Marlin and 7.62 X 39.
A propellant with many uses, IMR 3031 has long been a favorite of 308 Match shooters using 168-grain match bullets. It is equally effective in small-capacity varmint cartridges from 223 Remington to 22-250 Remington, and it’s a great 30-30 Winchester powder.
IMR 8208 XBR The latest in the versatile IMR line of fine propellants, this accurate metering, super short grained extruded rifle powder was designed expressly for match, varmint, and AR sniper cartridges. Ideally suited for cartridges like the 223 Remington/5.56mm, 308 Winchester/7.62mm NATO and the 6mm PPC, shooters will find IMR 8208 XBR totally insensitive to changes in temperature, while yielding max velocities and “tack driving” accuracy. Clearly, the competitor’s “choice” and the Varmint Hunter’s “dream powder”.
Originally a military powder featured in the 30-06, IMR 4895 is extremely versatile. From the 17 Remington to the 243 Winchester to the 375 H&H Magnum, accuracy and performance are excellent. In addition, it is a longtime favorite of Match shooters.
One of the most versatile propellant in the IMR line, used for 223 Remington, 22-250 Remington, 220 Swift, 6mm Remington, 243 Winchester Super Short Magnum, 308 Winchester, 338 Winchester Magnum, and the list goes on and on. Versatility with uniformity and accuracy.
Short granulation, easy metering, and perfect for the 223 Remington, 22-250 Remington, 250 Savage, and other medium burn rate cartridges. Long a top choice for the vintage 300 Savage cartridge as well.
The number one choice for the new short magnums, both Remington and Winchester versions. For magnums with light to medium bullet weights, IMR 4350 is the best choice.
Slightly slower in burn speed than IMR 4350, IMR 4831 gives top velocities and performance with heavier bullets in medium-sized magnums.
The BIG magnum powder. This slow burner gives real magnum performance to the large over-bored magnums, such as the 300 Remington Ultra Magnum, the 30-378 Weatherby Magnum, and the 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum. This powder is highly regarded by most magnum afficionados.
This magnum rifle powder has exactly the same burn rate as standard IMR 7828 and uses the same data. However, due to the super short kernels, metering is virtually as good as a spherical powder. This allows up to 4% more powder space in the case and in many loads yields more velocity than standard 7828. Such loads are marked with an asterisk in the data to show where standard 7828 will not fit.
