Re: Powder Selection for 7MM RM 168 VLD
H1000 is one of Hodgdon's extreme powders, Stability in wide temp swings is what it's designed to deal with, thats what the "Extreme" on the bottle stands for. and Hodgdon has done a fairly good job with making them temp stable
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
