Question on powder for 7-300 / 162 amax

I was wondering if anyone that has a 7-300 uses 162 gr. Hornady Amax bullets. If so, what powder do you use. I normaly used IMR7828 when shooting SMK's and JLK's. I've seen that alot of people are using H1000. Getting ready to load up some Hornady's and wanted to hear some opinions. Thanks.

    H1000 would be my choice for that bullet, you should be able to start around 73gr for a min load. I ran up to 77gr with a 168 berger in mine and it has a short throat
