    Accurate 2520 Smokeless Rifle Powder is among the very best powders for standard bore cartridges like 223, 7.62×39, 30-30, 30-06 (but 4350 is better), 303, and for cast as well as jacketed bullets with appropriate loads. I have used it for decades with very good to excellent results. It is not the best or even recommended for overbore cartridges, but great for most standard cartridges.

    Truth is, it’s hard for …

    Truth is, it’s hard for me to say how well it works because it meters horribly. You cannot measure this powder through most powder measures. I will eventually load a small batch of 223 by weighing each individual charge. You really need a trickler / electronic scale to deal with this powder’s long grains.

    This is the very first powder I started reloading with, way back in 1966. I killed my first seven deer with ammo I loaded with IMR 4895 and Hornady 150gr Spire Point bullets in a war surplus .303 Lee Enfield No.4 Mk1 my grandfather sporterized. This is still the most accurate load I’ve ever shot in that rifle. There have been countless high-power rifle matches won with this powder in M1 Garands and other rifles. This is still an excellent and accurate powder for many non-magnum cartridges with medium weight bullets. It may not give the absolute highest velocity for a given bullet in a given cartridge, but it will usually be one of the most accurate powders for that cartridge. It takes a little more time and a consistent technique to accurately meter charges thrown from a powder measure, but my method is to set the measure to throw a charge just under the desired weight and bring it up to the desired weight using a powder trickler.

    An old but good powder.

    A solid performer with cartridges from the 6mm Rem to the 30-06.

    This is a very good rifle powder for use in reloading rounds for hunting. It has a very good burn rate and is not sensitive to changes in temperature so it is really an all season good all around powder. It’s all I use now in my 30-06.

  8. Tony

    Very versatile, use it for several different calibers. Extremely accurate in my Weatherby 308 with Hornady 150 gr SP !!!

  9. Tony

    I use this in my rifles. I won’t use anything else in my rifles. Best powder ever. Imr has a really good product here.

    This is the biggest advancement in muzzleloader technology in a very long time. Extremely accurate and reliable. Waterproof. Requires minimal cleaning effort. I no longer hate muzzleloaders.
