    Yes I have

    Try H1000 from 88 to 90 grains depending of the rifle turned my 300 ultra to a half minute gun will hold we'll under MOA to 800 yards now , the 215 grouped way better than the 210 VLD .

    Load them and go shoot , the 215 are less sensitive to seating depth

    I load for 2 300 ultra mags, mine and a buddy of mines. Both are Remington sendaros. His has been trued bolt sleeved,factory barrel still. In that one we load 91 gr of H1000 with the 215 and it was 50 thou off the lands. We tried a lot of different depths and that was the one that worked the best. Well under 1/2 Moa. This one is pretty slow for an ultra 2985 fps.

    Mine is a all factory sendaro. Just bedded, a baxis trigger and a muzzle break. In that one I shoot 94 gr of retumbo (fairly warm but no pressure signs) with the 215 bergers 22 thou off the lands and it shoots at 3140. It shoots right around 1/2 moa.

    Both have no problems shooting gongs at 800.

    My loads are 40 off the lands and I am loading 91.2 GR of H1000 getting right at 3040 FPS .

    I tried retumbo but it gun didn't like it , switched to H1000 made all the difference

    RL25 gave better velocity for me than H1000 and is more consistent lot to lot
