Am I missing something you already have 4831  :dunno: 4831 and 4831sc are the same thing. Do you just want the Short cut because it meters better? Otherwise per Hodgdon they are the same and can use the same load data.

Just looked at my powders. Not sure what you are referring to. The only 4831 I had before I posted was a half pound of shortcut.

Sorry I thought you posted a pic of 4831 and offered it in trade ... am I mistaken? SC is the same powder ballistically. Depending on your powder drop sc meters better.

No biggy. No I wasn't offering it. I know they're the same powder. SC is what I originally based my load off. I didn't know if the longer grains would fit in my short mag case as well as the SC. With my lack of knowledge and powder being all but impossible to fiind now days, I wanted to go with what I know works.

Gotcha, Iím pretty new to reloading too just a few years now. The SC is also advertised as less temp sensitive I see so thatís another advantage. Main thing is though that at least you still have basically the same thing and can still load if SC isnít available.

 However Iím no pro so as always start from the bottom when trying any new powder (my disclaimer lol) also for any one else who sees this keep in mind although you can use the same load data interchangeable Between each of the H 4831 powders reg & sc Do Not use the Hodgson data for IMR 4831.
