IMR 3031 Smokeless Gun Powder
IMR 4198 Product Overview:
IMR 3031 powder is a stand-out choice for new short magnums. It’s designed for use with lightweight or medium-weight bullets. It’s compatible with both Remington and Winchester rifles. This consistent propellant delivers increased accuracy with every shot. Your best choice for reliable, high-performing reloading powder is IMR 3031 Smokeless Reloading Powder.
IMR 3031 is a medium burn speed propellant with many uses and is the favorite of 308 Match shooters using 168-grain match bullets. It’s an effective round for small-capacity varmint cartridges from 223 Remington to 22-250 Remington, and it’s a great 30-30 Winchester
The problem is that IMR 3031 is not widely available. It’s available in small quantities from a handful of distributors, but it’s not cheap, either. If you’re willing to give up the fast burn of IMR 3031, then IMR 4062 is a much better alternative. It offers more than adequate performance and is much less expensive. I have used IMR 4062 for many years in my own reloading operations, and I’ve had a lot of success with it.
Warning About Smokeless Powder:
Never exceed the load listed in the reloaders guide. When mixing two or more powders, never mix them. Never substitute another powder for Black Powder or a Black Powder substitute.
