I am starting to transition over to Retumbo for these loads...I can get some additional velocity...close to 2890 before I get into pressure signs.

H1000 is now the go to powder when using the Nosler LRAB in my rifle.
That's actually pretty good out of a 27". I was getting the following out of a 30" for 165 Matrix while fire-forming to .270 AI:

57.5 grains of H1000 = 2801 FPS (no pressure)
58.5 grains of H4831SC = 2981 FPS (no pressure)
