This fast-burning rifle powder gives outstanding performance in cartridges like the 222 Remington, 221 Fireball, 45-70, and 450 Marlin. It is also outstanding in cartridges like the 444 Marlin and 7.62 X 39. Varmint shooters with small-bore cartridges love it.

I use the Hodgdon data to reload all my different rounds. I recently bought reloading equipment for my son-in-law and grandsons to reload the .45-70 for Ohio deer hunting. The IMR 4198 with a minimum charge of 53.7 grs under a 300 gr. CT Nosler RN generates around 3400 ft.lbs. of muzzle energy and really puts the Hornady Leverevoltion to shame.
This powder is one of the best that I have used I have been reloading for about 13 years now and I have relied on this powder for most of my rifle bullets needs. I highly recommend this powder and fully recommend this company.
IMR 4198 GUN POWDER
IT WORKS REALLY GOOD ON MY 223 AMMO RELOADS
Have not got a chance to shoot this powder yet but I do have a bunch of charges weighed up and I must say while weighting it out the consistency of the powder looks great.
The product is very good
This powder works great for my 45/70 gov, loads. It's a very versatile powder with many applications. I only wish it was more ready available. I always grab what I can when I see it for sale. Keep up the good work IMR.
shooting my 38-55 with lead bullets, 255 gr. , I found that after trying 3 powder choices that 4198 was very accurate and very very clean shooting. I was down to the bottom of the can of my old supply and was very happy to be able to get a new supply from you. THANKS FOR THE GREAT PRODUCT AND SERVICE.
I received the IMR 4198 powder I ordered quite quickly and well packaged. I found it easy to measure and weigh and made for consistent rounds in Mt 38-55.
Using the powder for low pressure cast large caliber bullet rifle loads. Very accurate and consistent.
I used it to reload 223 in a ar-15 pistol with a 7.5 in barrel this product did exactly what I wanted it to do it was accurate and velocities were right where I wanted them to be 2200 FPS with a 55 gr bullet this may not be rifle velocity you want but it is good in short barrel ar pistols

IMR 4198 for Marlin 1895 Trapper
I tried AA 5744 and Hodgdon 322 under Hornady 300gr JHP and just couldn't get decent groupings consistently, despite hand weighing every charge. I tried some 4198 and can shoot clover leafs at 50 yards (with XS sights even !) All this guy needs for brush hunting deer in Maine !
My go to for .444 and .45-70. Happy to find it in stock!
IMR 4198 for 223
I use IMR 4198 with Sierra Matching 69 gr with very good results.
Probably one of the best powders for use in 556 and 762×39, very satisfied with my purchase.
Use in smokeless muzzleloader with great success.
I found the IMR 4198 powder is the most accurate powder for my 7.62 x 39 loads. This powder works well in both semi-auto and bolt action rifles. I like these loads for shooting hogs out to 200 yards, these are head shots. The hogs are dead before they hit the ground. A very fun round to shot and easy for my daughter to handle. I'm waiting for it to come back into stock.
We love it.
I purchased this powder to reload 45-70 for my sharps rifle, I don’t load them to hot as I want something enjoyable to shoot all afternoon target shooting. I keep my muzzle velocity down around 1282 FPS. I found this powder to burn clean an not much residue left in the barrel, I really like it. Will buy more when it’s available.

Very accurate powder for smokeless ML
IMR 4198 Powder
Good versatile powder, use it in 223/5.56 ands 300 Blackout subsonic rounds.
Great powder. Exactly what I was looking for for my 52 and 53 grain rounds.
Extremely versatile powder .
It’s my go-to powder for cast 308 loads in several rifles.
IMR 4198 Powder
I think this is an excellent powder and will continue to use it for my 45-70 reloading.
I use this powder in my Grendel load development with great success. I would certainly recommend it to others for its consistency. Does not meter well from my XL650, but I check every charge by hand anyway.
Provides very best accuracy in my Cooper 38 in 17 Fireball with 25 grain Berger HP varmint bullets, about 1/2 MOA at 3.600 FPS. I tried 7 other powders.
