If not I may try some H4831sc and see if I can get an accurate load with good speed.
I use a ton of rl series. I just had issues with my stw with rl25 that were purported to be rl sensitivity ( 171 barnes match grouping well until the temp breaks 80 then loosening up and tossing flyers) until I put retumbo under the same batch of bullets in the same casings with the same primer with it doing the same thing. Ifound out it is 100% the bullet not handling the heat and pressure well, not the powder.

No worries, if you need something specific, send me a PM or something. Takes 2 minutes to run the numbers.
