Powder?

For that bullet weight and barrel length, I would be looking at US869 and Retumbo. I use Retumbo to get 2900 with 240smk's in a 27.5" kreiger 300rum.

US 869 is not an extreme powder and Retumbo gave us the exact same velocity with wider ES so we settled on H1000. Also the group size was slightly better with the H1000.

I keep on hearing the same things about Retumbo and H1000. I'm about ready to try some H1000 in Kirby's 338AX (Lap Imp), instead of the Retumbo I've been using, and see what happens with the 300 Berger. Anybody tried that case, powder and bullet yet?
