Re: Is Hodgen's 4895 and IMR 4895 the same?
I don't believe so. Hodgdons owns both Hodgdons and IMR powder lines, so they make both H4895 and IMR4895. If you go to there website, and look up some loads, they use differing amounts of powder.
For example, these are the loads for 30/06 with a 150 grain Nosler bullet:
H4895, 46.0 gr. @ 2806 fps for 44,400 CUP to 51.0 gr. @ 2976 fps for 48,500 CUP
IMR 4895, 49.0 gr. @ 2856fps, for 49,400 PSI to 53.0 gr. @ 3009fps for 56,700 PSI

I always take precautions.
