Jim
I also got to do some testing with some H 4831 SC like you suggested.
Same Barnes bullets loaded .050 off the lands just like before.
Did my testing at 300yds and best group was 90grs. I had some loaded with more powder than that but it was getting hotter and the mirage was making the orange dots dance. I didn't bring the chrono with me this time but I have loaded up some more for further testing and will clock them then.

I was really smiling after I shot this group.

UPDATE
I finally got to get out when the temps aren't in the 90's to 100's. I loaded some up with H4831 SC and shot some 3 shot groups for my upcoming mule deer hunt that is in a week with some very GOOD results. I also installed my Canjar set trigger from my Rem 700 in 7m/m 300 Wby mag. So far 92 grs. is grouping the best by far. Now I just have to load up some more and shoot some at 500yds with 300yds being my zero. They averaged 3217 fps.

Can somebody make me up a drop table for this load with my zero being 300 yds. What other info do you need?
Thanks Tarey
So if anybody has a Canjar trigger for a Remington 700 they want to sell, let me know.

Very nice group! I am working up a load using 91 grain of Retumbo that shoots 1/2'' at 100yds. still going to work up and see if I can shrink it down. I started at 84.5 and that groups well at 3/8" but it was only 2718 fps.

I currently use 97.5 of H-1000 now for hunting with a 250 SMK that is about 3/4" It works great on deer and Elk size animals.
