MRP, MRP-2, H-1000, Retumbo will be the logical choices.

The MRP line often runs a little faster with less pressure than others.

Re: Just about out of H870

might look at AA 3100 and Magpro. They also sell a very slow 8700 that seems to work well in the .300 case. I'm waiting on a couple bottles of Magpro to try some loads in my 270 mag. RL22 and 7828 would also seem like good choices to me. You'll have to email AA for data on the Magpro powder. I think I'd start with 3100 and 7828 as these two are known to work very well. Still 8700 gives very dense loads

Retumbo would be the power I would try first. It really shines in the 264 Win mag over anything I have tried.
