On the powder burn rate chart, H870 is right inbetween RETUMBO and H50BMG. Both are readily available. Most dealers keep RETUMBO in stock, which is the more popular of the two.

H870 has not been discontinued that long. I would imagine that there is some still floating around that could be located.

For a substutute for H870 you might try WC872, it's supposed to be a slight bit slower but was told to use 870 data to work up loads. Pat's Reloading has it for $36 for 8#'s. And Bartlett Reloaders also sells it.

Have you tried AA8700? It's just a bit faster, but I find it too slow for my 7mmDakota.

Before you can really say that you love h870 you need to go out and actually chronograph your loads.

Without using the Bigger cases,heaviest bullets for the cal., and 30+ inch barrels I can't think of a use for it.

R-22 imr 7828 h-1000 r-25 are superior choices.
