I went to a different gunstore than my normal one to pick up some Accurate 4350. All this place had was Accurate XMR 4350. Is it the same stuff?

Maybe someone can verify that Accurate dropped the XMR and XMP prefixes from several of its powders. If no one else happens to be able to confirm that, call Accurate and ask for Customer Service. I'm sure they'll confirm it one way or the other.

So maybe this stuff has been sitting on the shelf for a long, long time?

As long as its unopened...it won't matter if it has been sitting for 30 years.

Even if it has been opened...as long as its been in a cool dry environment...it still won't matter. Powder will keep indefinately.

Some more info

Hey g-dog.

I read in a reloading book today (Lyman manual, or was it Lee? I don't remember which one) that the XMR prefix was dropped when Western Powders bought out Accurate Arms and took over the product line. Western Powders will use AA prefix for all Accurate powders instead of the XM prefixes. I think you're good to go.

Yeah, I used it, and seems to work fine using my AA 4350 recipes.
