Re: 16#--WC 872

It will work great with loads in the 30-378 with bullets 180 gr and heavier. In the RUM its best with bullets of 200 gr and heavier.

In the Lapua, it is to slow for even the 300 gr SMK. IT will work but you will not get top velocity potential and your pressures will be very low so you will have ALOT of powder fouling.

You can use load data for H-870 in most cases. A starting load for H-870 will be plenty safe using WC872 as it is slower in burn rate then 870.
