Alternative for 300 win to Retumbo

So no one has retumbo that I can find. H-1000 is tough to find as well.
Does anyone have a recipe for 300 win mag out of a browning A-bolt?
I would
Love to hear of a powder that is available here so I can try something else.
Thanks.
By the way, I have Bergers and Barnes bullets that I am trying.

    I'm an H1000 man myself but R22 and H100V are options for you

    rl 19, rl22 or 7828 will fill the bill very well. You didn't mention bullet weight, but if you are on the lighter side 4831, rl17 or 4350 could even work fine, albeit a bit faster than many use.

    Sounds great!!!! I am going to get some Tomorrow. I have 3 pounds of RL 33 on order for the Lapua. And I'm building a 7mm STW so I would
    Like something that will work in more than one gun.
    Trying the heavier bullets. 160 and up.

    Powders between H1000 and Retumbo would be RE25, Magpro, Ramshot Magnum, VV 170. Id stick with H4831 or Imr7828ssc if I didn't have a 26" or longer barrel.

    I have the same gun as you. I found 71grains of 4350 pushing a nosler accubond 180 at 3240 was many most accurate load. I tried rl22, 19, and one other I can't recall. I get 2/3inch groups and it kills elk well.

    I also had the stock trigger worked on and pillar bedded the stock myself.
