Interesting to know, that powder was labeled as a 6.5 Creedmoor powder when it came out. H4350 was tough to come by then and a lot of people went to the other new IMR powder 4451 because it was similar to 4350.

4166 is good with the 120's and lighter in the 6.5 creedmoor.. kinda comparable to varget .i use it in a 243 with a 75 gr. Bullet.. and have used it with a 107 gr tmk in the 6.5 creedmoor.. both shot well and gave good speed in them applications..

Plan on shooting Stabal 6.5 loads tomorrow in my 7mm-08 improved.

Obviously from it's name it's a ball powder, it's very fine as in leaks out of the powder measure on my auto thrower. Pours well though and settles very nicely allowing more powder to be used.

I'll have some velocity numbers soon.
