    * Dramatic title aside, I’m looking to push 75gr Hornady HPBTs as fast as possible out of my 24″ barrel. Varget is out of stock everywhere, so I’m reverting to my stash of H4895. I also have IMR4895, but Hodgson has it to be slower than H4895.
    * Currently Loading 24.0gr of H4895 over 75gr HPBT @ 1.940 OGIVE has me at ~3000fps, but seeing mild pressure signs.
    * Are there any powders that are known to be faster for heavyish bullets?
    * I have not tried CFE223, 8208-XBR, BLC-(2), Ramshot Tac, or RL15, but anecdotes are appreciated.
