Thank you guys!

I will go with CCI 250 and H-1000.
For sure I will post the results.

What would be the starting load for H1000 with CCI 250 primer and 300SMK's?

Thank you,
Chris

    im sure the extra 2 " of barrel will help you, but like Kirby said sounds like the velocity you are getting is the exception rather than the rule ?

    The H 1000 was the best for consistency with temp changes.

    Let me know what it reads on the fancy chrono please. My OAL for that bullet is 3.775

    What barrel are you running in yours ?

    Cheers mate

    DUH
    Here's the specs on the rifle.

    Receiver accurizing package

    Wyatt stretched magazine box

    Holland Comp recoil lug installed

    Lilja 32" barrel stainless steel fluted

    Muzzle brake

    Matte finish barrel

    Jewell trigger upgrade

    Nightforce rail base

    Nightforce 30mm rings

    Nightforce 5.5x22x50

    H&S precision stock

    I have not found a bad load for this rifle. (GOT TO LOVE KIRBY'S WORK) i tried retumbo up to 95gr. but i want to use H1000 for temp reasons. Here in south Texas we get some wild temp changes. today its 28 this morning and will be in the mind 70's later to day????????????? My OAL is 3.800

    primers

    do influence accuracy; significantly!! Suggest you search my post and chart on velocity spreads with various primers. Overbore

    G'day mate !

    The H1000 seems to be the ticket. Your gun sounds like a killing machine.

    I like the attached list of components, very impressive. Actually very similar to my own DE rifle.

    Send me a pic of that stick of yours. I'd love to know where your gun Max's out to with H100 ie. powder charge vs accuracy ?

    Good shooting

    DUH

    Hodgdon lists both H1000 and Retumbo as extreme powders, is the Retumbo not as good for temp variances?

    Cheers,
