  • Benchmark Powder , what do you think?

    I have some that I have never used...

    Since I can't find powders I want, like IMR 4350, RL-19 and IMR 4831...
    I figured I would try to load this stuff into something or another...

    Since it seems to be close to IMR 3031 on the burn chart, has anyone used it in a 45-70 load?

    I can't help with .45-70 info, but it works well in my .223 bolt gun with 50-55 grain bullets. Should work in your 6.8 also. But I can't imagine anything working better than H322 in the 6.8 SPC.

      It has become my #1 powder the 308 and 223 loads for the AR's and I am just starting some load development with the 45-70. I finally got sights back on my rifle. I'll be posting some Benchmark/45-70 loads soon. It is very clean burning, one of the exreme series of powders from Hodgdon's and is in the right burn rate for the 45-70. About like H4895 which is good for the 400 grainers, it is slightly faster burning, so should be very versatile.
      Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?
