    Default Stable powder?

    I'm getting close to starting the reloading process. Just waiting on the press. Anyway I remember someone mentioning something about a temp. stable powder. What is that, and who make it? Is it important and if so, which powder would be good for working up a load for a 375 H&H. What does it do for accuracy compared to other powders? Thanks for the help.

    I have found 4350 to be the best powder for the .375 H&H. It takes less powder to reach highest velocities with 4350, than any other powder that I know of, with the 270 and 300 grain bullets.

    More specifically, Hodgdon's H4350 for the 375 for 270 to 300+ grain bullets. It is the most temperature stable powder available for the old H&H.
