Re: IMR 4895

My stating starting on the low end is just that.I loaded at the recommended starting powder charge.As far as it being the wrong powder the man that I got the gun from uses IMR 4895.The loads he used in the gun shot 9/16 at 200 yards.I have the target to prove it.The loads used were for his other 22-250 and he said it can be made better.I never said I was going to use the same powder in each gun but may try and see the results before jumping to conclusions.I also have a Hornady manual.The Hodgdon website lists the same load I tried.In fact it lists IMR 4895 for all of those calibers.It may be the wrong powder for me but unless I try I will never know.
