260 Powder

I am running low on Varget which is what my 260 likes, I have 8lbs of H1000 has anyone loaded this in a 260. I also am planning to work up a load for my 6.5-284 as my 4831 is empty and none in sight.

H4350 or Ramshot Hunter

H1000 is just too slow for a 260.

H4350 43.5gr and the berger 140's are amazing as well. I'm thinking it should do well with most bullets on the heavy side.
