I might use it and look see what accuracy i get since i am out of 2400 at the moment.
fmj, iuse IMR4350 as a broad spectrum powder, as it covers many calibers i reload for, several months ago i added some new ones to my collection, IMR4895 and IMR4064. i started using the 4895 in my 7mm rem. mag. loads, and gave up a small amount of velocity, but found it to be very accurate, (more than the 4350) and much more pleasant to shoot as the recoil now is way less. i also use the 4895 and the 4064 in my 204 ruger reloads. i am constantly trying different loads to achieve the best accuracy.

The fastest powder I use in .30-06 is W-748 or BLC-2. The 4227 is ill suited to the large -06 case.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
