I have had good results using Retumbo, Fed 215M primers with the 230 Bergers. I suggest starting low around 84.0grs. & work up to your desired results. I finished up an 8 lbs. of Vit 24N41 only to find out that they no longer make it. Over the next few weeks I plan on trying some US 869 just because.

Nice thanks for the info. I tried the 869 in a 338 ultra but could not get the velocity out of it I was looking for . what kind of velocity were you getting out of the 230 and what barrel length are you running.

Re: 300 norma load info

I have not run the 230's over the chrono yet. The load that I tested the 230's against were the 208 AMAX's which ran 3157 fps avg. The barrel is 30.5" Rock Creek. The 208's were hitting the in the 13" blue scoring rings of a 1000 yard IBS target. Without changing anything I fired the 230's using the same aiming point. The 230's were 2 MOA higher on the target. I generally use the bullet strike as a barometer for both velocity or BC improvement.

Re: 300 norma load info

Any update here?

We've got a reamer just waiting for a bolt to put one together with a Rock tube to play with... Got some Retumbo and H1000 to play with. Would like to try out the 230 and 215 Bergers.

Re: 300 norma load info

Of the two powders you listed I think that you will have better results with Retumbo. I am a fan of slow burners. I have also had better results with RL50.
