Re: Help me choose a powder for lr hunting

Al three powders will work. I have tended to get best velocity and ES with Retumbo which will fill the case. As with previous posts, 215 primers will generally produce lower ES and higher velocities. IMHO.

Retumbo will give the best velocity and H1000 will likely give the best consistency at long range but every rifle is different. You don't need mag primers for H1000, and in fact, I have found the 210's to give better accuracy. I use nothing but 210's or BR2's for my 30/375 S.I. and it shoots bug holes with H1000.......Rich
