No I don't think its a misprint. That's all the powder they can get in the case it's a bulky powder for the 6.8.

You can write Hodgdon but this does not look out of line. I use H4895 for my 45.70 and reduced loads in any caliber. In the 45.70, it is lower pressure than black powder with more velocity. You can also use 60 percent of a maximum published load for a reduced load. I have gone a bit lower than that but fill the case with tissue paper to keep the powder up against the primer.

H4895 has both the lowest velocity and pressure.It makes sense to me.

I use IMR4895 in heavy bullet 5.56 ammunition. I doubt that it would be a good powder for normal 6.8 loads.
