Powder suggestions for 338 Norma mag

I have all the parts ordered for a 338 Norma build, and am starting to collect reloading components.

Is there anyone out there that can give me some suggestions on powders that should work? ( other than RL22 ) It would also be helpful if someone already shooting this round had some good starting loads.
I will be shooting 300gr SMK until the new Bergers come out.

Would Retumbo & H1000, and some of the other powders the 338 Lapua and Edge shooters use be a good place to start?

I too will be testing one soon and will start with H-1000, it works great in the edge at 92 grains with 300 grainMK

gyesko,

Talked with Ward Brien this week and he suggested trying Ramshot Magnum. Also found a thread on the "6mmBR" website posted by Mr. Sloan, he also was using Ramshot Magnum. Think they were using between 91gr and 92gr.
You might want to give it a try also.

Let me know how the H-1000 works for you.

Duane
