Does anyone have any experience with Accurate Magpro Powder and if so would you share it with me?

    I played with it a little in my 270 WSM, it was way better than R17, showed less pressure signs with more speed. Accuracy was also better. It's on the winter list of powders to tinker with more. It showed promise though.

    I have loaded this powder in many different cartridges. It is now one of my favorites. Let me know what cartridge you want info on and I may have done it or one very similar.

    I am going to try it in 7mm wsm first. I was told by a guy at the range that he could not get any consistency out of his 270 wsm until he went to Magpro powder. Any help or information is greatly appreciated.

    What I had was loading 2 rounds at 1/2 gr increments, I would have to check what I started with but when I hit the max with pressure signs the, same as my Retumbo, load I was pushing a 140 Berger at 3420 up from 3300 with good hint of accuracy. R17 max'ed out at 3260, and was spraying them out to 3 in.
