Stick with H4350 or RL19. Should be good powders. May want to try some N550 too. I have just started playing with Ramshot powders, and the initial tests are quite nice. Haven't Chronied them yet. I shot a really small group and waiting to take it to 200 or 300 yards to see what it can do. I am curious to see what the spreads are. If you want to play with some of there powder, might want to consider there Big Game (which I am going to test yet), and there Magnum or Hunter (which is listed in their load data) powder. Just a thought.

Re: Almost done!

I was thinking the same on powders. Already have a pound of R19 and H4350. Will post pics of my new Kirby Allen built rifle and results of load testing

Sweet, looking forward to your rifle and its results. Ask Kirby about loads. He won't steer you wrong.
