Shawnee Mission, KS- IMR Legendary Powders introduces a new super powder,IMR 8208 XBR. IMR 8208 XBR is a remarkably advanced technology propellant perfected for the greatest match, varmint and sniper rounds known today–223 Remington/ 5.56mm, 308 Win./7.62 mm, 6mm PPC, 204 Ruger, 6mm BR, 22-250 Remington and similar calibers.
This short grain extruded rifle powder exhibits a previously unheard of consistency with virtually no change in velocity at temperatures ranging from -40 degrees F to 165+ degrees F. Uniformity from shot to shot translates into tack driving accuracy and this powder has passed the test:
- Currently loaded in premium factory sniper type ammunition
- Leading competitive bench rest shooter Mr. Lou Murdica won numerous matches with it in 2009, starting with Heavy Varmint Grand Aggregate at the Cactus Classic
- August 2009 Mr. Jim Carmichel won the International Benchrest Shooters Associationâ€™s 40th Group National Championships, Heavy Varmint Grand Aggregate. Because temperature conditions change, bench rest shooters vary charge weights during a dayâ€™s competition. What is significant here is that Jim shot the exact same load of IMR 8208 XBR both days to win the event.
IMR 8208 XBR will be available in 1lb. canisters and 8lb. kegs in 2010 at dealers everywhere. For more information, see the 2010 Hodgdon Annual Manual, phone IMR at 913-362-9455 or write to 6231 Robinson, Shawnee Mission, KS 66202.
