    H1000 and RE-25 are both very good and fast. 4831sc is a little slower but has been the accuracy leader for some.

    Don't know what Burn Rate chart you have, but if it says 4831sc is SLOWER that H1000 or RL25 you need to throw it away before you blow your self up!!!!!!
    Please be careful

    I am using RL25 with 180 gr Bergers

    I think the statement that was made on the 4831 was meant that the speeds were a little slower not powder burn rate. Not for sure but that's the way I took it.

    I read it the same way. He was talking about velocity not burn rate.
