One instance I have used rl33 in is the 300rum with 225 grain hornady hpbt bullets. I was able to go to 95 grains rl33 at normal pressure getting 3000 fps using rp brass and a 215. Hodgdon is getting retumbo to 89 grains at 2900 fps with the 220 partition.
Thanks, Lefty7mmstw, good to know, unfortunately at this time there isn't any RL33 available here.

Even though ADI powders are plentiful, they still don't produce the kind of accuracy or velocity I have got with Alliant powders, double base powders are more predictable, H1000 is a good example of only working in a narrow pressure window, I'm still yet to try Retumbo in anything, but suspect it will be the same.

Now I guess the question is whether it is possible to ream the chamber of a 375 H&H to .375 RUM.

First is the question of rim diameter - whether the H&H bolt head / extractor will fit or will not fit the RUM case?

Obviously there is the issue of whether the base diameter of the RUM is going to be excessive - less chamber wall thickness to handle pressure after reaming out an H&H - potentially very dangerous?

Finally, there is a question whether the shoulder of the H&H will clean up with the RUM reamer.
