Sounds like you're on the right track. I tried H-1000 in my 300. It worked well but I really started whooping and hollering when I tried Retumbo.

Re: H1000 - Wow!

I shot 5 more 190gn SMK's this evening with 80.5gn of H1000 and now I'm flabergasted. How critical is the sun's position on the skyscreens? I shoot underneath a bunch of big oaks and the sun filters through. Here's my 100 to 500yd range.

These photos were taken during Saturday's shooting session about 3:35PM.

Today's velocities ran 3136/3158/3141/3130/3161 (3145) ES 31.07 SD 13.63. Not the best but accuracy was OK at .5245". It was approx. 7PM today when I shot.

Anyone got any idea's?? JohnnyK.

Re: H1000 - Wow!

No ideas about the chrono, but H1000 is and has been a true "best kept secret." That is one of THE best powders in the 7RemMag. You may want to try some Retumbo too.
