I am trying to find one powder to load for different military rifles and it seems that can do all of them (H4895) and works well for lighter loads. Just for target practice. I have 6.5x52 , 6.5x50 , 308 , 30.06 , 303 , 7x57 , 8x50r , 7.62x54r. Right now I have H414 , BLC2 ,Imr4227 , 4064 , 3031 and all are almost gone. It would be nice to just have one powder to keep them all loaded.

I use H4895 to reload:
.223
.270
6.5X55
7.62X39
7.62X54R
.308
30.06
.303 Brit
7.5 Swiss
7.7 Jap
8X57
8X56R
Pretty much everything that is not a magnum rifle.

I use IMR 4895 for just about every thing I shoot in rifles. The exceptions are:
IMR 4831 for 30-06
BL-C(2) for 6.5x50 Arisaka and .308 Winchester.

H4895 is sort of the Unique powder of rifle loads. It is good for SO many calibers.

Care to share your recipe for 8x56r? I use the 205 fmj stuff from PRVI.
