Hodgdon's new Hybrid 100V propellant combines the chemistry of a spherical powder with the geometry of an extruded propellant. According to the company, Hybrid 100V is ideal for use in calibers that fit H4350, and it delivers velocities not seen before in many popular cartridges, such as 3310 fps for a 150-grain bullet in the .300 Wby. Mag. Its unique small-grain, semispherical/semiextruded shape allows it to flow smoothly through a powder measure, thereby improving charge weight consistency and load density. Hybrid 100V comes in 1- and 8-pound containers, and complete data is available at the hodgdon.com Reloading Data Center.
