ADI/HODGDON propellants

G'day, I have confirmation. I am new to reloading and started with 1/2 kg of AR2208 powder. several people said this powder is the same as VARGET. Well I contacted the ADI help desk and they sent a list of their powders that get sold by HODGDON.

G'day. I have recently began to reload. (.222 & .270) I chose the AR2208
powder as it is compatible with both of the firearms that I will be
reloading.
As I have been looking into various aspects of reloading on the Internet, I
have been told that the AR2208 is sold in America under the 'Hodgdon' brand
as 'Varget'. Can you confirm this for me? This will make American loading
data relevant for me here in Australia.
Do any of your other powders get sold under other names? This information
is to help identify relevant loading data.
Thank you for your time.



Thank you for your enquiry with regard to reloading using ADI Sporting
powders.
Normally we would try and respond within 2 working days, but due to other
commitments and with the numbers of enquiries received it has taken longer
than expected. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Thankyou for your recent enquiry with regard to reloading using ADI Sporting powders.

Some ADI propellants are sold in the US by the Hodgdon Powder Company, including AR2208 which is sold as Varget. It is the same powder.

Attached is a listed of other powders sold in the US under the Hodgdon brand.

Extreme caution should be taken and loads should be worked up accordingly. Refer to our website at www.adi-limited.com/handloaders-guide or our hand-loaders’ guide for more information, warnings and reloading safety.

We thank you for using ADI Sporting Powders.









Yours Sincerely

Thanks be to you for your diligence and foresight in providing this list to us. I have often wondered what powders Hodgdon sells that are actually produced by ADI. I printed this for an insert to my Hodgdon #26 manual. Cheers. CB.
