Ballistically, this Extreme Extruded powder is the exact copy of H4831. Physically, it has a shorter grain size, therefore, the designation SC or shortcut. The shorter, more compact kernels allow the powder to flow through the powder measures more smoothly, helping to alleviate the constant cutting of granules. With the smoother flow characteristics comes more uniform charge weights, while the individual grains orient more compactly, creating better loading density.

The exact copy of H4831 is ballistically called Extreme Extruded Powder. Therefore, the physical designation SC or shortcut is shorter in grain size. The shorter, more compact kernels make the powder smoother and help reduce the constant cutting of granules through the powder-size measurements. With the smoother flow characteristics, the load weights are more even while each kernel is more compact, and better loading density is created.
Handloaders typically use Hodgdon’s Extreme Series extruded powder H4831 for hunting big game.
Bruce “B.E.” Hodgdon initially created this propellant in 1950, and it has since been a favorite for usage in cartridges like as the 270 Winchester, 25-06 Remington, 280 Remington, and 300 Winchester Magnum.
In terms of ballistics, H4831SC incorporates this extreme extruded powder, which is similar to H4831. The name “short-cut” comes from the lower grain size that distinguishes its physical qualities. Because shorter, more compact kernels do not require frequent chopping, powder flows more readily through the measurement equipment. Tighter grain orientation leads in increased loading density and more uniform charge weights, both of which are enabled by improved flow characteristics.
As an Extreme extruded propellant, it shares the fine quality of insensitivity to hot and cold temperatures, as well as superb uniformity from lot to lot.
