300 WM heavy bullet powder

I almost have my 300 win mag finished and will be using it to shoot heavies (208-230 grain) it has a 30" tube and is throated long to seat these big long bullets out there, its a single shot so OAL can be as far as it needs to be
I have some 4831sc to play with from my 260 but am thinking i should try some slower powders also. I want to grab some H1000 and was considering some Retumbo but dont know if that will be too slow for the WM
anyone have any experience or suggestions?

    Ramshot magnum or H1000 are my go to powders for this application with that long barrel Retumbo could work also !

    I use H4831SC with 200 grain bullets with excellent results so that's the first powder I'd try. Retumbo and H1000 should also be OK but I don't know if they're any better than H4831SC.

    rl25 will do 2800 fps in a 300 win with a 220; so will 7828

    I'd guess h1000 and retumbo would do well too. My brother had a 300win in a #1 doing 3100 fps with a 200 speer and retumbo and we were prarie dog hunting with it. If they were above the mound I'd take 'em with my Striker in 22-250; if they were in the mound I'd call in the artillery and he'd blow 'em out of the hole with the 300win and 200 speers.
