I've never had straight H4198 not fire either, but I ran it over a chrono at 75 degrees and the same load at 35 degrees and got over 300 fps slower at 35.

It is temp sensitive. I figure at 20 degrees another 50-100fps.

That was 58gr straight H4198.

A duplex of 10/48 SR4759/H4198 did not measurably drop with the temp.

I don't either. I was talking above about H-4198, not IMR-4198. Two different powders. I shot IMR-4198 in the .50. My experience was somewhat like yours - erratic. I gave that experiment up and went with H-4198.

I found only 4 loads in the .45 database with IMR-4198: 54-57gr with a 195/200. That is probably just one person. He also used a WW under his sabot.

Almost everyone shoots H-4198 60-62gr with a 195/200.

Good luck.
