Powder Suggestion for 300 Ultra

I just got a Abolt Heavy Barrel 300 Ultra and want to reload for it using the Berger 175 HVLD's. What would be your starting powder choice?

Thanks

Re: Powder Suggestion for 300 Ultra

H1000 would be my first choice and then Retumbo. In my 300RUM, Retumbo has not proven to be a velocity advantage over H1000. The Retumbo shows pressure on the case quicker than H1000 too. This is my rifle though.

My first two choices were H 1000 and Retumbo. So far I have only been playing with Retumbo and my rifle likes it, but if it didn't I would be playing with H1000
