Re: H1000 Or Retumbo

mtang45,

That sounds inline with what I have read over at Sniperhide. Very good velocity and bugeye groups.

I got news that I should have my rifle in about 2 weeks

Re: H1000 Or Retumbo

Eaglet,

That is the kind of info I was looking for. I think I need to let my rifle tell me what it likes.

Waiting on a new rifle is making my mind do to many what if's

Thanks,

Ray

The best velocity I can get with the H1000 is about 3080 fps.

I assume the same relationship between the powders would exist in the 338.
just wondering why you would be trying to get Sierra MK up to max fps since they're only made for hitting paper and not for penetrating meat or bone ? Have you used MK for hunting with any success cuz I've found them very accurate in my 8mm Rem Mag.

No never would use the Sierra MK for hunting living creatures. However, I do hunt inanimate objects like milk jugs, tobacco tins and recently have been trying to nail a pesky golf ball at 500 yards. So far he has escaped every attempt.

There are a lot of guys here that use SMK's for hunting. A great many are using the 300gr SMK in .338 for long range hits on elk and deer, me included. Do some searches and see how many people are hunting with them. This subject has been debated in depth so I am sure you will be able to find more than enought threads to read.

Re: H1000 Or Retumbo

H1000 has always worked well in standard Lapuas and the Ack Imp versions.

I have not shot Retumbo in my 338 AI, but H1000 hammers in almost every gun and testing US869 now.

Another go to powder that most forget is MRP for 250s and under and MRP2 for the 300s. My first 338 AI would run 300s at an easy 2975 with MRP2.

Dave Wilson was getting 200 fps more with MRP compared to other powders shooting his 338 Bullpup with 225s. Dave get your elk?

Dang, out of MRP2 now.

Anyone had any luck with US869.
