Re: 300 RUM - Hodgdon US869

1 LB cans sell for $23/can. How much did you pay for that 8 LB can?
Enough said.

Interesting. I've heard it both ways with these two powders... Managed to get my hand on a 1lb of H870 a couple of years ago and ended up finding that, in my rifle, US869 was more consistent and gave better velocities. Interesting how experiences can differ.

It was a nearly two years ago. Just been sitting waiting for me to get to it as my other jug gave out, so I can't remember for sure. Seems like $160 rings a bell. It was more than $150 and less than $200.

Re: 300 RUM - Hodgdon US869

I stopped at 104grs pushing a 208gr Hornady AMAX. Using Rem Brass and Fed 215 match primers. I think mid 90's in 0.5 gr steps a good choice.
Good Luck, Don
