Long Rifle is optimized for the 6.5 Creedmoor. Whether with lightweight, moderate or heavy bullets loaded in this cartridge, Long Rifle yields high loading densities and optimized velocities. If you seek accuracy, one of the keys is to find a propellant that can “fill the case and seek maximum velocity”.
Folks often ask us for alternatives to H4350, which is the fastest of the 4350 derivatives on the market. Quite simply, Long Rifl e is our alternative to H4350. It is only slightly faster than H4350.
This propellant has a burn rate optimized for 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Remington, and .30-06 Springfield. Our initial evaluation in the .300 Winchester Magnum
also proves its ability to meet 2900 feet per second with a 190 grain bullet.
Our accuracy testing revealed no group over ⅞ MOA, with many groups ½ MOA or better. We have received numerous reports of Long Rifle’s ability to approach the elusive 1-hole group. And these reports are received often enough, that it no longer surprises us.
Despite Long Rifle being an extruded propellant, we have found good flow characteristics through a volumetric powder dump. The grain is narrow, and cut short. While some reloaders insist on weighing each powder charge, we did not fi nd that extra time necessary when loading for accuracy with this propellant.
