Re: One Choice

ES , stands for Extreme Spread , which mean the devation between shots , like if you shoot a five shot group and the high vel is 3000 and the low vel is 2980 you have an ES of 20fps , the lower the ES generaly the better the gun groups.
I think that R-22 gives such good ES because if fills the case well , Nosler#5 has 75.5gr of R-22 filling the case to 98% , generaly the fuller you can get the case the more accurate the load is.
H-4831 fills the case well also and would be a good choice , I've heard of a few guys using the H-4831sc which is the short cut version and having good results

    I have been using IMR4350 in my 300 Win, winchester and remington brass, federal magnum primers. I use it for 165gr BT and the new 200 gr accubond. It seems to be temp insenitive and gives an ES of about 50fps. It is nice to know that if I shoot in 90 or 20 degree temps that it chronographs consistently. For some guys 50 fps ES may be too much, but the factory barrel doesn't seem to care, still shoots under 3/4 inch.

    I just got me an older Savage in 300 winmag and a friend gave me some RL-22 because he had good results with it.

    I think I'm going to try out N560 due to some weather changes here in Texas.
