Product Overview

4895 is a versatile rifle powder with origins in the 30-06 cartridge as a military powder. This is a historic powder for Hodgdon as it was the first powder sold by our founder, Bruce “B.E.” Hodgdon to the reloading public.

As a member of the Extreme line of extruded powder, this powder is a good solution for 30-06, 17 Remington, 250-3000 Savage, 308 Winchester and 458 Winchester, to name just a few. It is amazingly accurate in every cartridge where it is listed in our data.

Made in Australia.

Available in 1 lb. and 8 lb. containers.

    H4895 - Highly recommended for 308 with 168-176gr. bullets in 20" barrel

    H4895 - Highly recommended for 308 with 168-176gr. bullets in 20" barrel: I have experienced low SDs (less then 5 fps on average using Lapua brass), accuracy (sub-MOA 3 shot groups in my long stroke gas gas piston rifle, sometimes less then .5 MOA at 100 meters) and velocity (2638 fps for 176 gr. A-tips and 2670 for for 168 TMKs). Hodgdon, please, please double or triple production so I can get some more and other shooters can also benefit from this great temp. stable powder.

    I love this powder in a No.3 Mark 1 Enfield. I use a 174 BTHP bullet and it shoots 1' groups all day long with minimum fouling and recoil. It also works well in a Winchester 54 in '06 with a 147 grain FMJ. Meters very well and quite consistent performance.

    Excellent Powder

    I've used this powder in 308, 223, and now in 6mm BRA and it produces stellar accuracy, great velocity, but above all awesome standard deviations. On all 3 cartridges I was able to product SD numbers below 10 FPS. I also compared velocity between 100+ degree weather and the dead of winter and found only a 20 FPS change.

    Perhaps the best powder I've ever used. Consistent over the years, easily metered, temperature insensitive, and great in my rifles.

    Awesome powder for my BRA. Keep it coming - it’s been hard to find.

    What a great propellant! Very temperature stable, and I am getting nearly one-hole groups now with my 6.5 Creedmoor after trying several powders over the years, including H4350, Alliant RL16 and Vihtavouri. Used it to hit 5 of 5 at 1000 yards. Now my standard propellant!

    I chose H4895 for my antique Trapdoor Springfield and it works better than any other powder. Not only is the accuracy amazing for a rifle this old, but the powder offers the best combination of low chamber pressure and case-filling density.
