IMR4064 PROPELLANT REVIEW BY: LYNDON COMBS

"One of the most versatile propellant in the IMR line, used for 223 Remington, 22-250 Remington, 220 Swift, 6mm Remington, 243 Winchester Super Short Magnum, 308 Winchester, 338 Winchester Magnum, and the list goes on and on. Versatility with uniformity and accuracy."

 

The quote above is from the IMR propellant site, and it pretty much sums up what is key in loading for multiple cartridges on a budget. Versatility with uniformity; accuracy that is how they describe IMR - 4064 propellant which lives up to the companies claims, and is why I use it for all my reloading. Using one propellant means instead of buying numerous small containers of propellant I can pick up one large container at bulk saving money and cutting down on bench clutter.

When you are dealing with economic times like we have in America now cost is more important than ever when reloading. IMR 4064 allows me to do with one propellant what would have normally took six or seven types of propellant, and a great deal more  money.  

To explain what I am saying here is an example two of my favorite cartridges the .30-30 Winchester, and the .338 Winchester Magnum.  I reload for both, and would normally be using  powders  like  IMR -3031 for the .30-30, then H-380 for the .338 Winchester Magnum,  but with IMR -4064 I can load both of these cartridges to nearly the same performance levels (in some cases better levels) with less cost and clutter on the bench.

My old load for the .30-30 would have pushed a 150 grain bullet at 2192 fps using IMR -3031 propellant, but by switching to IMR 4064 I can push a 150 grain bullet at 2236 fps. this is a move up in this example. Now with my old .338 load I could get 2886 fps. using a 180 grain bullet and H380 propellant. In my new load I can achieve using the same bullet 2885 fps. using IMR -4064. This is nothing when talking about velocity, especially when considering that I can also then load for cartridges from .22-250 to .45-70 and not have to buy any other powder. To me this makes the most sense, and is what reloading is all about.  Another plus in this is that this also helps if you wanted upgrade to a better premium bullet, or simply pass the savings on to another part of my hobby. I hope this helps you out,  be safe, and God Bless.
