Roy, I did not plan on trying the Hodgdon powders due to their physical characteristics, and fear of the resultant bridging.

I will try the Re25 as Kirby has not, and as soon as possible, I will report results. Bullets will be 150 Btip, 150 Berger VLD, and 169.5 Wildcat.

I would like to use this rifle in TX for my antelope hunt this September.

I'll add a little here...

While I haven't been reloading for years - all I reload is my 300 Win Mag and I go through a couple pounds of powder a month. I was using Re22 - but it wasn't giving me good groups with heavier bullets and was leaving a lot of crud in my barrel after 30 shots. I switched over to IMR 4350 and had good results with it. I went to IMR 7828SSC because I am using the 208gr AMax bullet and had read outstanding results with that combo across the internet. I have also noticed that I don't have near the crud in my barrel after a long trip to the range, when shooting the 7828SSC.

Derek M,

I got the chrony working this after noon.

I tried 83, 84 and 85 grains of 7828SSC and the 150 gr ballistic tip. The 85 grain load, gave 3502 FPS is pretty much max in my gun.

145 TSXs gave 3600/3514/3524/3574/3402/3499/3530. They didn't shoot for squat which was expected.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
