Shawnee, KS -(Ammoland.com)- IMR Legendary Powders has created a new line of sophisticated extruded powders that are loaded with more features than any other brand of powder available today.

Enduron Technology features a built in copper fouling eliminator, insensitivity to temperature extremes, small sized grains for easy flow with an ideal loading density, and there are no ingredients considered harmful to the environment.

  • IMR 4166 – is the first in the series of Enduron propellants. It’s a perfect burn speed for cartridges like the 308 Win/7.62mm NATO, 22-250 Remington, 257 Roberts and dozens more. IMR 4166 is a positively versatile, match grade propellant.
  • IMR 4451 – Another new Enduron powder that gives top performance in the venerable 30-06, 270 Winchester and 300 Winchester Short Magnum, to name just a few. This propellant is ideally suited for many mid-range burn speed cartridges.
  • IMR 7977 – is the slowest burn rate Enduron Technology powder. It is a true magnum cartridge propellant with outstanding performance in such cartridges as the 300 Winchester Magnum, 7mm Remington Magnum, 338 Lapua and more.

 

The new IMR Enduron Technology powders will be available at dealers everywhere in early 2015 in 1lb and 8lb containers. For more information and data visit imrpowder.com or check the 2015 Hodgdon Annual Manual.

How about giving us some decent load data on your enduron gun powders. I won’t try them until I see some tables with good and comprehensive data. What are you waiting for??

I am finding that IMR 4166 is a great powder for my 9.3×62 Mauser. Load data seems to be very close to that of IMR 4064. It meters well for it’s size and load densities in my cases are near perfect at close to 100% with very reasonable pressures and good velocities. If the accuracy proves out after further load development it could be the Katz— and may well be a good replacement for Varget. I haven’t used it enough to notice a difference in copper fouling. So far, so good !

I have pleased with the anticopper fouling CFE 223 in the notorious copper fouling .17 Remington. It is also fair with heavy 40 gr bullets in the .204 Ruger and .20 PPC. Small bores copper foul quickly, even with custom barrels, HBN coated bullets and nitrocarburized bores. Groups open up measureablly before twenty rounds with my .204 Ruger.

Varget has not been available since the run started two years ago. I bet that Hodgdon has not purchased any from Australia but rather spending their capital on IMR 4166 from Canada (CIL).

Tom L. I agree with you on that too, but I’m really excited hearing about these new offerings from IMR/Hodgdon, and I will be looking for them on the shelves at sporting goods stores when they are available. I would love to try them.

Rifle powders seem to becoming more widely available once again…But, what I’d really like to see is some pistol/shotgun powders become available for reloaders once again!
