Might be worth a try if you have some magpro lying around, I have been very pleased. Good luck.
Magpro was developed expressly for the WSM case, and I think it's gotta be a natural for the SAUM case.

My brother-in-law run some tests with different powders and found that Hodgdon Extreme powders had very little temp changes.

Wrong. Check for yourself. Hodgdon Extreme powders will change as little as 10 fps from 30 degrees to 100 degrees. I have seen Reloader Powders change as much as 100 fps in the same temp change. I love Reloader powders but only use them in my varmint rifles for this reason. I don't care what powders others use but if you have the right load Hodgdon Extreme powders are the way to go for people who need a load to shoot in many different weather conditions.
