IMR 4227 or is it Hodgdon?

I just got a new pounder of IMR 4227, it came in the Hodgdon container with an IMR label. It is a very odd thing to look at.

I just thought I would share the change with you all.

From this:

Times, they are a changin'.

IMR and Hodgdon

Perhaps you haven't heard. Hodgdon now owns IMR. You may also note the lids are different colors.

Yep, heard about it a while ago. Just passing on the visual oddity.

Also, Hodgdon has discontinued H4227 and HS7.
