300 Win Mag Powder

Well I am now back on track with my load development, thanks to everyone that helped me out with the case shoulder questions, and I was woundering what is your guys favorite powder for a 300 Win Mag with a 190gr Burger. I am using H4831sc, and wanted everyones opinion on this power, and others. I am shooting a Rem 700 and so far my rifle is liking 68.5gr.

    Im a big fan of 4831 but I think the original works better than the short cut in a 300wm. My theory is that it has something to do with the extra room in the case.

    H4831SC is for sure a good powder. I've used it in several different calibers and results vary but accuracy has always been good. I have enjoyed great accuracy with IMR 4831 with the lighter bullets (150gn) in a previous .300WinMag Sendero that I owned.
    With the current .300WinMag that I own, I have tried H4350, RL22, RL25 and most recently H1000. The 190gn SMK are producing sub-1/2" MOA at 500yds with this powder and CCI 250's and velocity is running 3145fps on average. JohnnyK.

    I have had a few others tell me to give the H-1000 a shot. Think I might give'er a go.

    My son and I both have 300 wins and shoot 210 bergers. Plus I have loaded for several other 300 wins. My favorite powder is H-1000. Just seems to fit the case like it was made for it and accuracy is great.
