Oops, I mixed a little H4895 with Varget. It was about 180 grains of H4895 into a 1 pound jug of Varget. did I just waste a very expensive and scarce bottle of powder?

Just say no!

There will be some posters who say "use it". :eek:
But remember, they're not at the end of the rifle, you are.

I know, it sucks.
But I'll bet you won't do it again.
(learned from a similar experience.)
NEVER, NEVER have 2 powders out at the same time.

Please stay safe.

Really? But they load within 1% of each other and I only added about 4% ratio. I also load to the middle of the charge range for my gun. I think I could scoop out the top portion before having to waste it all. Just hard to do for such a little bit when I can't find powder anywhere.

It's thrown out. Consider the thread closed. I don't want to start a big debate like I read in some other threads. Better safe than sorry. Thanks guys.:)

If you want to try and reason the mistake in such a manner, that it justifies your desire to use it, then do so, it's your body and firearm. This is a mistake you made the result of failing to adhere to one of the rules of reloading, and now you want to break a second rule? No support here.
