Re: Gonna try a new load

Using H4895 and 175 HPBT is one of my favorite Krag loads. I worked up from Hodgdons recommended 35gr, so you could start there if youre looking for something a little softer.

37gr H4895
Sierra Match King HPBT 175

Re: Load Suggestions

I've used both IMR-4895 and H4895 in my 30-06 rounds, and I prefer the Hodgdon H4895. I just think it performs better.


Thats interesting. I prefer IMR4895 in 30-06 but use H4895 in the Krag.

Re: Load Suggestions

40gr Hodgdon H4350
220gr RN Soft Point

37gr H4895
Sierra Match King HPBT 175

Both with CCI 200 primers

IMR4895 and H4895 are similar, but not the same. So I wouldnt use them interchangeably.

Was thinking about the very same thing when I saw the news this morning. So sad.
