Looking everywhere for H4198, haven’t see any in about two years. Thought with reloading supplies starting to show up that there would be some. Very frustrating with all the scam internet store trying to sell it. Can’t even find it on Gunbroker for ridiculously inflated prices. Anyone know if Hodgen plans on making any? or anyplace have it on their shelves.

I haven’t seen H4198 for a while also. I use it in my 444Marlin loads and am still ok for now. Like Padraig, IMR4198 has been available and I’ve stocked up on it. I use the IMR4198 in my 45/70 and 38-55 loads and it should work for 444Marlin. One of the guys at my reloading store said his sources are telling him that larger amounts of powder will be released after the first of the year. His source claims they are not releasing it to drive the prices up. Hopefully, he is right and more is available early next year. I’ve been buying powder every chance I get, especially stuff that hasn’t been around in a while like Unique, H4895 and Reloder 7.

According to a friend in the ammunition manufacturing business, H4198 is the most commonly used powder in commercial reloading. He has a difficult time acquiring it. He says it will not be available to the general public anytime soon.

IMR 4198 is not directly interchangeable. However, it is very similar and can be used for the same applications. Like rx7driver advises, work up your loads for each powder.

I too have been paying a lot for powder but have been getting what I need or can use. A lot of people will not pay todays prices and I completely get it but I have collected 16 pounds in 12 different variety's that will work in the calibers that I reload and I also have 5 pounds in 7 different variety's that I have opened and are presently using. With a little research you can find other powders that will work and some that might work better. IMR 4198 will work where H-4198 works, BUT,,, they are not identical and should be treated as different (which they are) powders when working up new loads. My reloading is for hunting and a couple of family all day shooting sessions per year, no high volume progressive reloading. Good luck on your powder search, I learned a lot about it while researching alternatives.(y)

Why is H4198 banned in the EU? Do they have something against Australia Defence Industries, who makes it? Maybe they don't like the competition and want to price gouge selling EU produced powder?

I just bought a pound of Ramshot Big Game at Cabela's online for $31.99 plus $1.47 State tax. Free delivery to the local Bass Pro/Cabela's store. Since the riots in 2020 and the resultant component shortage, I've bought and burned through 3 pounds of Big Game. Absolutely no complaints. It burns very clean and the targets look good. If you load in the 4064 to 4350 general burn rate, it's definitely worth a try.

It's been banned because it isn't REACH compliant. (They say it's carcinogenic)

Stupid. Are people eating it? Or are they worried about DNT combustion contributing to climate change? Makes no sense.
I thought the same thing. I've never eaten gun powder. Come to think of it, I never had the desire to drink my cleaning solvents or my motor oil. I'm sure the same stupidity will be here in the USA in the next 20 years. I'm stocking up now.

The world is becoming a place where people are too frightened to do anything without someone telling them it's OK.
Years ago we were told that Diesel was carcinogenic, but our wonderful government of the time told us to buy diesel because it was better for the environment.
Now we are being told to buy electric because diesel is bad for us.
What ever happened to making a choice for ones self.

You are correct sir. Personally, I love diesel. However, despite it being barely refined it costs about 50% more than gasoline because the government here adds extra tax because it's a dirty fuel. On top of that, diesel is what powers nearly all the freight in the US. It's so backwards thing here in our Government.
