I have heard a lot of good things about retumbo that is why I bring it up. But I am open to suggestions.
7828 will work for both magnums bot fall rather short in the 308. That one needs 4895, rl15, or varget, but a smattering of other powders like ballc2 will do well too. The lapua and 300 win can both use retumbo.
