    Very nice! H1000 is definately faster than 4350. With the 180's H1000 gives 3 MOA less drop at 1000yds compared to a load of simular pressure and H4350.

    I had a SD of 9.2 on my extreme temp test by the way. I will never even attempt a different powder over H1000 due to its extreme ability to resist temp drops and raises.

    Don't sell yourself short on just H1000. Try the test with any of the "extreme" powders, and you'll be just as happy.

    Which other powders would you try?
