Difference between 4831sc and RE22

Been using 4831sc in my 300 win mag, and was thinking about trying RE22. I have seen then fps difference and the fill ratio, but was moe concerened about accuracy. I know my own barrel is special, and I need to try it out for my self, but I was just wondering if any one out there had tried both in a 300 win mag, and what the results were. Thanks

Not opposed to comments on on H1000 either. O ya pusing a 190gr. Burger. Only thing left stock on my rifle is the barrel, Remington barrel that is.

im shooting rl 22 in my 300 win mag. 71.2gr under a 185 VLD i get 2975 FPS out of a 28 inch hart barrel with a ES of 8 fps it shoots way better then i can hold , i would recommend trying it.

Not in that caliber, but I got better velocity and accuracy out of RL22 compared to H4831sc in my 260, but that probably doesn't help.

Re: Difference between 4831sc and RE22

I have several rifles that prefer the Re loader brand of powder and shoot extremely well,
but with extreme temperature changes they tend to change POI (Mostly when going from 40o
to 100+o)

So I would recomend checking performance and zeros under the same conditions you intend to
hunt if possible.

Funny thing about the RE after doing some research is I have found out that it is a great powder, but the consistancy in the powder changes from batch to batch, and that it is more weather sensative than the Hogdon. Still need to shoot some of it.
