I am shooting the 300SMK in front of Retumbo. 93.5gr puts me right about 2800fps. I will be developing some loads with the 300 OTM soon.

99 grains of RL-33 gives me 2840 fps in a 26" barrel.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Riley,

What was your comparison MV with Retumbo? I didn't have much luck increasing MV changing to RL-33 over Retumbo in my LM.

Thanks

Max was 91 grains of retumbo, at 2714 fps.

H1000 maxed out at 90 grains, at 2695 fps. I have more data in this thread.
