    Is Hodgdon H414 similar to H4350? I've used 4350 in 6.5 and 7mm stuff, but never H414 - I read somewhere (don't remember where) that they are similar, but talk's cheap. I asking for experienced advice.

    H4350 is a extruded powder, H414 is a ball powder.

    I've used both in 30-06. The H414 will meter better than the H4350.

    Yes and the H4350 is one of the Extreme Powders so it's much more temperature insensitive than H414.

    H414 is also the same powder as Win760 and their burn rate is shown to be a little faster than H4350, but can be used in similar capacity cases at the proper charge weights listed at www.hodgdon.com. H414/Win760 are temperature sensitive, whereas H4350 is an extreme powder and far less temperature sensitive.

    I also am a big fan of H4350 - its dynamite in my .260 Rem (Sako AV). But, golly its hard to find any 4350 now.
