H4831sc is a favorite powder for the target shooters because of it's consistency.
Works for me.
Punching holes in large game animals is almost a different issue. I've always thought the idea was to have a fairly stout load to inflict some serious damage, and use the slower loads for trigger time at the range.
Using H1000 I got great targets but when I got close to 3000 fps the primers were flowing into the firing pin hole pretty good.
I use Mag Pro over a WLR primer, and 162 Hornadys. As I worked my way up the load ladder, my Chrony said 3055 fps with more than 67 grains. And good accuracy, but not target accuracy ( 1 MOA ). No high pressure signs. There might be an accuracy node at higher speeds, but I quit here.
Guess it depends what you want the rifle to do.
