    OP: What type of cases were you using? They seem to be running real hot and I'd imaging that your case is full of powder: compressed load?

    I just loaded some test rounds with 147 FMJ in IVI cases, staring at 40grs moving up in 1/2 grain increments to a max of 43gr, almost fills the case: maybe 1/4" from the top.

    Looking forward to seeing other results using this powder.

    I’ve been loading gas checked Lee .312-185gr sized down to .309 in 308 FC cases under 34 and 37gr of this powder to get ~2000 and 2200 fps respectively chrony’d out of a 18.6” barrel Stag 10.

    It burns clean, fills the case well despite being a light charge, and best of all runs the AR10 platform flawlessly. I’m debating buying another 10lbs. I’m very happy with it. Judging by the case fill I’m getting with these reduced charges, I can see going up to max charges in 308 being compressed loads for sure.

    Lapua 223 Rem cases
    Norma 308 cases

    IVI or other military cases are heavy, have low capacity and cannot be loaded the same as Win, Lapua, Norma etc. In my experience.

    There is some powder crunch in most of my 155gr 308 Win loads, whether Varget, Imr 4895 or d4895. At 2.80"oal thereabouts.
    I'm using a chrony and quickload, and loading near max ( over in this 47 gr d4895 308 Win case) so please don't mimic my loading.
    I'm just trying to share my experience that this powder is, as advertised, very close to imr 4895.

    The new 4198 is a new lot. The 4895 is the same as the last lot AFAIK
