Seems like I just keep coming back to 4320. It's what I started with over 50 years ago and it seems to beat everything else or at least be in the running accuracywise in just about any medium velocity round I load.
Just finished a ladder with Varget, 4166 and 4320 in the 308 and guess who won?
Don't see much mention of it but it works for me.

Do you have a good stock of it? I believe it has been discontinued.

I had found it to be excellent with 150/155 grain bullets in the 308 Winchester.

I use it a lot in the 8 x 57, 7.65 Belgian, 7.62 Russian match loads (nothing else comes close). My inventory is diminishing, and I am searching...Norma 201 seems to fit almost grain for grain...but that is unobtanium here in the land of inconvenience.


Well this is a fine pickle we're in, should'a listened to Joe McCarthy and George Orwell I guess.

Very picky 243 pre 64 FWT that Dad bought for Mom in ‘57. Absolute tack driver with 4320 and 100gr Nosler Solid Bases. Yes, both discontinued 🤬

I'm still using it. Down to just a few a few pounds left though.

It's been great for me in 17Rem, 223 and 250Savage.

Yep it's been a good powder for my 8x57, 308, & 30-30. Down to my last pound and then it's all over but the crying.

I have about 3/4 lb since it only gets used in hunting rounds, it should last a while.

I still have several one pound cans. I'm thinking of using in 30-06 loads for my M1's.

Always seemed to mirror RL 15 in what I load for. I wouldn't toss it away.

I sold about 40 lbs of various powders earlier this year. 2 lbs of 4320 were the only powder that went unsold.

I have a couple of pounds yet. Mostly use it in the 358 Win. Dabbling a little with it in a new to me 30-06. Hunting use only so my supply should last a while.

While I had a fair supply of various "newer" powders early into the "crises" my range/LGS had 8#'ers of 4320 for $200. I have used it a fair bit in the past with the "improved" powders as well. It just works fine with the rounds I shoot. About optimum in some and more than suitable in the rest. I bought it and I am likely done buying powders.

Until it was discontinued I used it for the 300 Savage and the 350 Rem. Mag. I still have two or three pounds, and I'll save that for the 350.

I have three or four pounds left. Use it in the 338-06. Don't shoot it often so it should last awhile.

Used up the last of mine few weeks ago. Pretty old stuff my father purchased in the late '60s - early '70s.

I have about 6 pounds of it, in unopened one pound containers. I bought it because it was on sale and being phased out.

Hodgdon quit making that and SR 4759 has really pissed me off toward them... who needs all of these new untested by time powders they keep coming up with, when they have products that have worked for decades after decades.

I tried it way back in a Browning Safari 243, a Mark X 25-06, 30-06, IMR 4320 just didn't measure up. Finally gave the remainder away!
