    Hackers can set up a random number generator to do a million combinations in a blink of an eye. Then they just need to dump the numbers into a system, and see what they hit. That's also how they get your passwords, and telemarketers find you.

    H322 was originally a repack surplus powder but it was not the ball powder Accurate 2230. H322 was surplus IMR 8208 an extruded stick powder from 5.56. When surplus ran out I believe Hodgdon had a replacement made in Scotland for a while.
