(173 customer reviews)



Hodgdon Varget Powder

Hodgdon Varget Smokeless Gun Powder is an extruded propellant in the Hodgdon line of Extreme series of powders. Varget features small, extruded grains for uniform metering, is insensitive to hot and cold temperatures and produces higher energy for improved velocities over other powders in its burning-speed class.

The powder ignites quickly and burns clean, translating into superb accuracy, higher scores and more clean, one-shot kills.

Varget is the perfect powder for shooting a 223 Remington with heavy bullets in competitive matches. Outstanding performance and velocity can be obtained in such popular cartridges as the 22-250 Remington, 308 Winchester, 30-06, 375 H&H and many more.

Available in 1 lb. and 8 lb. containers.

    Varget and just about any 50 to 55 grain bullet pushed from a 22-250 equals good group.

    Great service—thank PV! Varget speaks for itself—the best .308 powder I’ve ever used.

  14. Jay (verified owner)

    Best place for powder period.

  15. John (verified owner)

    The powder is fine, however in my opinion, Powder Valley should allow customers to purchase two bottles of powder versus one to save the customer on HAZMAT fees.

    Great experience, extremely satisfied!

  20. Larry (verified owner)

    First Varget I’ve seen in over 2yrs! Finally, my 308 can stop whining. Cost a little more than I like to pay with shipping and hazmat fees but if you want to play you have to pay. Powder Valley thanks for making the near impossible happen and by getting it to my 308 quickly.

    Thank you for NOT being one of the many companies that used the component shortage to take advantage of their own customer base. And – thanks for creating a web site that allows you to shop while things are in the cart without losing them. Oh – and thanks for doing your best to stop scalpers from buying up all of your components so that they could resell them on GB.

    Bought 5lbs. Of Varget for the first time I’ve been able to get any to try and the 5lbs. never made it to my house. I’ve never had an issue with Powder Valley, they’ve always sent products out in a timely manner and I’ve always have received what I ordered except for the 5lbs. Of varget.

    Because they have done their very best to serve their customers fairly without crazy profiteering during the great component shortage, Powder Valley has earned my loyalty, and I always look here first. Varget is the go to powder for competition shooting in the 6 BR and .308 family of cartridges, but most everyone already know that.

  114. John Heilman (verified owner)

    This is the best powder. I use it for dasher and 6.5×47 cartridges. It is very consistent. thank you for making it available

    I appreciate that PV has held their price down despite what others may be doing. It has been difficult to catch it when available, but glad I was able to get some. PV has always been a reliable and efficient supplier. I love the “in stock” part of their site. Makes it so much easier to see what is out there.

    As always, shipping was fast and efficient! Powder Valley has become about the only place I use when ordering online. They routinely have better inventory and with the rapid rise in cost of reloading components, they seem to be more reasonable than most.

    Easy transaction, just a shock when I’m paying 3x what I paid a couple years ago. Other than that, it was smooth. I’ll be glad when we can get all the powder and primers like we could before. The powder (Varget) is a great formula for my bolt guns. I have fired more than a few “possibles” using it and hope to do more before I’m done.
