Product Overview: H380 powder
Hodgdon Powder has the widest selection of high-quality smokeless propellants for use in reloading applications available anywhere.
The H380 Powder was originally developed for use in the 22-250 Remington rifle, and it quickly gained a reputation for accuracy and velocity. The H380 is also a fantastic performer in varmint cartridges such as the 220 Swift, 243, 257 Roberts, and other fine varmint cartridges.
When the late Bruce Hodgdon first used H380 Powder, it was an unnamed spherical rifle propellant. Today, it is known as H380 powder. When he discovered that a 38.0 grain charge behind a 52 grain bullet produced one hole groups from his 22 caliber wildcat (now known as the 22-250), he named the powder H380 after the number of grains in the charge. The H380 is also a fantastic performer in varmint cartridges such as the 220 Swift, 243, 257 Roberts, and other fine varmint cartridges. The grain is shaped like a hollow ball.
A Word of Caution Regarding Smokeless Powder:
Do not load the cartridges with more than the maximum loads specified in the reloaders guide.
There should never be any mixing of two powders, regardless of the type, brand, or source of the powders.
Never substitute any other smokeless powder for black powder or any other substitute for black powder.
