300 WM with 230 Bergers and Retumbo?

Did some research and didn't find much.
Going to try Retumbo with Berger 230gr OTMs and/or 230gr Target Hybrids in a .300 Win Mag., 24" barrel.
Already tried H-1000 and had pretty good luck.
Anyone have any info to share?

Mostly because Greyfox had good luck with Retumbo shooting 210 gr VLDs, better ES and SD.
Also hoping my rifle likes it better.
And because I found a can of it at Big Bear.

Haven't been to the range with them yet, but I loaded up some Berger 230 OTM's for my buddy's .300 WM, using 61.0gr of Reloder 22.
