Ballistically, this Extreme Extruded powder is the exact copy of H4831. Physically, it has a shorter grain size, therefore, the designation SC or short cut. The shorter, more compact kernels allow the powder to flow through the powder measures more smoothly, helping to alleviate the constant cutting of granules. With the smoother flow characteristics comes more uniform charge weights, while the individual grains orient more compactly, creating better loading density.

The exact copy of H4831 is ballistically called Extreme Extruded Powder. Therefore, the physical designation SC or short cut, is shorter in grain size. The shorter, more compact kernels make the powder smoother and help reduce the constant cutting of granules through the powder-size measurements. With the smoother flow characteristics, the load weights are more even while each kernel is more compact and better loading density is created.
It’s likely safe to say that H4831 took more big game than any other powder. This famous burning rate was first introduced by Bruce Hodgdon in 1950.
