Is anyone using big game in a 300wsm?

Hey guys my dad just got a savage 300wsm and I was wondering if anyone is using ramshot big game powder for it. I was going to try some 168 grain amax in the gun. just looking to see if anyone has tried this combo.

    When I had my 300 WSM, I never used Big Game but I did use Hunter.

    I used Hunter in my 7mm Saum but not Big Game.

    Hunter gave good SD and accuracy, but rather slow on velocity. Works very well in 6.5 Creedmoor. Hunter that is.

    I've used BIG Game powder in my 300 win(long mag) (with the old on the bottle data before the guide came out) with 190 sierra and hornady pills and it shot great, especially with the sierra pills. Give it a whirl, you may not get the best speed in the world as it's a bit fast burning for the 300 mag's, but it should shoot great.
