    Thinking on it. N560 can be a bit temp sensitive, if I had a 25-06 again I'd be keen to try RE26... goes great in the 280AI.

    H4831 is the version offered by Hodgdon now manufactured by ADI.
    AR2213 was made by ADI only for the Australian market from around 1985 to 2000. This is faster than H4831. AR2213 is not H4831.
    IMR4831 was originally made by Dupont and marketed from around 1974. IMR 4831 is faster than either of the above powders.
    AR2213SC Is made by ADI for Hodgdons as H4831SC and also sold direct by ADI. AR2213SC and H4831SC are reported to be the same speed as H4831.
    Can we all please be careful to identify the exact powder we are talking about as there are three different powders all with different speeds, plus the difference in lots.
    Regards Grandpamac.
    Personally I think that because the OP has IMR 4831 and has shortened his barrel it would be a good choice. Agree faster than H4831. IMR stands for improved military rifle and military 4831 was available from after WW11, the Dupont being slightly different again adds more to the wise advice to start low.
    Micky Duck and grandpamac like this.
