Yes it is . Those are great place to start, but in the end all the talk in the world means nothing, your rifle and your rifle alone will tell you what she likes . Best of luck.
But I can't imagine not getting good results with one of the other top 3 powders mentioned above. But hey? It is handloading. LOL

And (both) Bob(s) are right on of course. Even after all my decades of handloading & the too numerous times of seeing what one gun likes the other doesn't, it is still almost always amazing (to me). But that's just me of course. LOL Just one small example is, a previous 22-250 I had did not like Benchmark with the 50 & 55 gr bullets, however, it LOVED the Benchmark with the 40 gr bullet. Stuff like that.
I know Frank won't like this, but if the IMR 4895 groups good I would just use it even if it is a little slower on the fps

The main thing I think many people do is they just expect too much from most factory rifles. At some point they begin chasing their tail. You can buy a fat man some running shoes...doesn't mean he'll win a marathon.

I was just going to say that but in the H4350 is what my 243 likes in 90 gr and I use the h4895 for the smaller stuff like 65gr vmax.So many different choices out there I just like using what I have on hand.
Seems the 243 loves the 4350. Too bad its such a long grain as it is tricky to get to measure right in the throw. If I feel it cut a grain i dump it back in the top and throw another.
