ok thanks for info. It seems like everybody is getting best results with 97 grains of retumbo. That's a compressed load. Never loaded a compressed load. Is that tricky.

I have experienced this also, same powder. 300 fps delta from winter to summer.
Retumbo is my powder of choice for a hunting rifle in 300RUM
