h1000 vs retumbo

How much different is it? I noticed they have data for the 8mm rem mag using h100- but not retumbo? But they list both for the 264 win mag. I don't know if its because test rifle 8mm had 24" and 264 had 26"?

It's tough for anyone to list every possible combo for a load and also both H1000 and Retumbo are better choices for a 264 Win mag than they are for an 8mm Rem mag.

Can that apply on down to a 243 as well? If so, I'll store this in my 243 load folder for use some day if I ever get to reloading that puppy. (...it's for the 3yr G D)

I don't know. I've never loaded for a 243.

Retumbo is a bit slower burning.

I use Retumbo in my 243 Ackley Improved and it does a great job. I would only use it in a 243 for the heavier bullets. I am shooting the 105 grain VLD's at 3200 fps out of a 26" barrel.

Re: h1000 vs retumbo

isn't retumbo just h1000 with a coating extra coating for a slower, cleaner more stable burn?
