    Howdy,

    Welcome aboard.

    I find Hodgon US 869 works very well in my 338 RUM. Its pretty much "on the order of" 872. However I think that either powder would be a bit slow for the 225s and 250s. I use the 300 SMKs and the combination is great. (101gr US869)

    Roy,
    Where do you get your US869? I have not seen that before. When we get to burning 125 grs and more, if the powder works well.... then I give it a try.
    Thanks,
