Has anyone here tried the new Enduron line from IMR? The IMR4451 is stated to be temperature stable and a replacement for the elusive H4350. The IMR4451 is on the shelves in most shops around here.

Never, but if it mirrors H4350, it is worth a look!

I have thought about trying it, but every time I make up my mind I find a pound of 4350. And the fact that it's about 8 bucks more per pound has something to do with it as well.

At the shop here, it is only $3 more than the H4350 that disappeared 6 months ago. I picked up 2 lbs to try. Now to get time away to load it.

One of my buddies has tried IMR 4451 with excellent results.  He is shooting a Tikka in 260 Remington he built.  He tied for first at the MOST series match at Big Piney in Missouri last week.  He's getting higher velocity, using a lower charge weight, with Berger hybrids.

I've always been a Hodgdon Extreme fan, in particular Varget and H4350.  This is worth reading IMO.

Good article.  I'm typically a Reloder 17 user for my 260 Rem and plan to use it for my 338-06 loads that I'm working up, but these are hunting rifles.  Drawback with Reloder is that its charge is typically heavier compared to comparable loads using Varget or H4350.
