HAVE USED ALL FOUR of these propellents in years [ decades..] past and cannot think of a single place where they are not easily replaced by something else. The first two sort of killed themselves off by their similarity of numbers and handloaders [ ' reloaders' ] confusing them with in some cases disasterous results.

Thanks for the info.,Kid. I never used any of those so it won't affect me. I did like to use H450 for my 30-06 loads. But, I can't find it anymore. I guess they quit making it also.
The powder I use now for the 30-06 and my 22-250 is H380. I have some very accurate loads for the '06 and the 22-250 with H380. I hope they don't stop making it.

I'm very sorry to see 4759 go. It is my go to powder for 45-70 with 300-350 grain cast bullets loaded to 1500+/- FPS in my Ruger #1.
