    I need to order some to try out. I have been told that's what Weatherby uses for their factory magnum powder. Seems to be good stuff for overbore calibers, so it oughtta be pretty decent from what I've read about it.

    Bigbass, what state. I see H1000 almost weekly here in the Phoenix area. Local gunshops, Cabelas and shooting supply stores usually one will have some. My son and I use it in our Weatherbys.

    My gunsmith likes the Norma powders. He tells me that the MRP is about the same as RL 22. He also says that the Norma 217 is very close to H-1000. In fact we just worked up a load for my 7SAUM with the 217 and 180 gr Berger's. Getting 2910 fops with good accuracy. Suppose to not be temperature sensitive. Brruce

    MRP, WXR, and RL22, are made by Bofors in Sweden and are the same powder, there may be a difference in quality or specification standards but it is the same stuff.

    I find this burn rate chart to be more interesting than most...

    I am in Louisiana, I've gone to Shreveport ( closest big town ) and looked all over, must have more reloaders than I thought around here, all powders are really low, what is left is pistol powder or something I don't need. Internet seems to be cleaned out, this must be a really popular powder, I see why everybody stocks up when they can.
