Re: Hodgdon US 869?
I was running 869 in my ultra before I switched to retumbo.
104.0 grains behind a berger 210 vld with cci 250s was holdin 3/4 moa out to around 500. Thats as far as I made it before changing to a heavier barrel. And the new barrel would not shoot it.
869 works well in the ultra with the heaviest bullets you can get, I would say 210 as a minimum. There is a thread on here somewhere of someone running the 240 smks with good results....

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history
