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)
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!

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.
