I'm no powder expert. I do believe powder "sensitivity" is more marketing gimmick than reality. I've killed big game at freezing temps and a shirt sleeve elk rut hunt. Temps didn't affect accuracy.

There's an old fishermen saying: fishing tackle is designed to catch fishermen. I can trout fish the Western USA with a half-dozen lures. I can offshore fish for big tune with a couple. I learned the expensive way: I have tackle boxes full of stuff that has never touched water.

I'm new to predator/small game hunting. I've bought a pound of IMR-4198 for my brand stanking new Triple Deuce. I have a feeling it'll be the only powder I'll need. I can load my big game rifles with only H-4831 & be content.

Just my opinion, and I ain't a powder expert. I merely know what works.
