338 EDGE reloading powder start - info

Hi,

I just put together a new 338 edge, I already called Hodgon, but they are closed untill Jan 2nd 2008.
Do have somebody starting info for this 2 powders:
US 869 and Retumbo?

Rifle:
338Edge rifle (remingon LA) 30inch Rock Creeck barell with 9.4 twist rate, muzzle brake Holland QD

The reloading combo will be:
-Nosler brass
-Remingotn 9 1/5 M primer
-US869/Retumbo powder
- 300SMK

Which of this 2 powders it gives me more velocity though this tube.


Thank you
Chris

    never tried 869, just gave up tring to get ahold of some. retumbo shot a tad faster, but 1000 works the best in mine, and just about everyone else's.
