    Default Rifle powder

    Hope all is well. I've been reloading for a while. I'm from pa and moved to tx and am pcsing to Alaska. Is varget still a good powder in Alaska? It has been good in the temp extremes in pa was just wondering.

    I haven't looked at that one particular but the powder shortage of past seems over and there is plenty of stuff on the shelves.

    Hillary moved to NY and I moved out.

    I was mostly wondering consistency for cold. Warm and elevation change.

    Varget should be as good as anything else.

    All of Hodgdon's Extreme powders are made for extreme temperatures high and low.

    About 4 guys I know use Varget in their .35 Whelen. They are shooting moose and caribou from August till late September.

    I use Varget in my .35 Whelen and .308 Win.

    Varget, H4350, Enduron 4451 and H4831 should cover all your big game rifle reloading needs

    I use Varget for my .22/250AI loads and have never had a problem with it during very cold winter varmint hunting.
    Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
