If you are running a 26" tube or longer, give the slower powders a try. My experiences are that using 7828ssc, h1000, retumbo and the like are NOT to slow and actually can increase velocity with the longer tubes.

Im running 7828ssc pushing a 150 scirocco at about 3040 and this is not a max load. Lots of room left in the case.

I'm running a 26'' Brux...I was hoping to get 2900 with the 168 LRAB..I know some people are having good luck with Retumbo and the 168s and also 7828ssc...
