Retumbo will give you the most velocity and I had good accuracy as well. I don't doubt that H1000 would be a little more accurate though.....Rich

I shoot H-870 in mine for best results. If you can find it. US 869 and Retumbo is what I will try next when the 870 runs out. My friends are doing very well with retumbo.

Ditto on the H870! I didn't mention it because it is no longer available but I got higher velocity with it than ANY other powder. You can get T870 which I am told is exactly the same surplus powder that was sold by Hodgdon......Rich

I use 102.7 gr of Retumbo with 168 BTHP that I've moly coated. 3550 fps and .524 moa at 600. It will get tighter with adjustments. BTW no pressure problems.

918, the US869 was most accurate for a friend's 300 RUM and my 30/378 Wby but living here in Az the temp sensitivity reared its ugly head with it. Went with the temp stable Retumbo and H 1000 which were consistent in the weather here, whether practicing in the valley or at 6500' in the mountains. Am currently working on a load for another 300 RUM now. Good luck
