    Dupont SR4756 (Green can)

    I was given 6 full cans of Dupont SR4756 (Green can) I have been told it is a good pistol bullet powder or shotgun powder. It has been properly stored by the prior usere who passed on. It is not one I am familiar with so thought I would ask here. What have you used it for and how did it work.

    Also received 6 (Red cans) Dupont IMR 3031--any difference in the old formula and what is out there now?

    I used a little 4756 long ago, mostly in 9mm P. Alliant should have data for it. I used it about where I might have used the slightly faster Unique.

    Haven't heard of change in 3031.

    RE: IMR 3031. Yes there has been a change. Many shooters find they have to reduce their old favorite load of 30 gr. under the 170 gr. bullet (.30 WCF) to 29 gr. Not MY experience but every rifle is different.

    Just a note, I recently had a can of the OLD IMR 3031 and it had gone bad. I was TOLD it had been properly stored but that was not the case (obviously). Take every can of older powder you receive as an individual and check it out.

    You might want to check out the IMR web site, that's the one the Dupont powder was sold to. Hodgdon owns them now. I like SR4756 in 38/357 7.0-7.3grns and a 125jkt bullet for the .357 or for the .44mag-7.5grns with a 240grn swaged or cast bullet and for a 9mm pistol-Nosler's most accurate and fastest load of 6.5grns with a 115grn bullet.

    I still have a old can of the SR7625 with the Dupont label on it. Good powder also and very clean burning. Both SR4756 and 7625 are very good powders in my book. BM
