Re: powder

H1000 burns quicker than Retumbo. In the calibers you mention, may I suggest you consider Ramshot Magnum as well. It is just as temp stable. I use Fed 215 and 215M primers for 90% of my loads. I have Winchester LR and Winchester LRMs on hand as well.

Re: powder

Like was mentioned before, Retumbo is the slower powder. I tried both in my 7mm Remington Magnum with 160 and 175 grain bullets. Retumbo won in both the accuracy and velocity departments. I use Winchester Large Rifle Magnum primers. My gun is a Sauer 202 that has a tendancy to walk a bit down and to the right as the barrel gets hot. Since I use it for hunting I developed my load for a cold clean barrel shot since thats the condition of the gun when I go to the field.

Re: powder

You didn't ask me but my 7mm Rem Mag/168 Berger VLD with Retumbo was 73.0 grains. I don't know what velocity was. Nosler brass and Fed 215M primers. Bullet 10 thousandths off lands.
