    My most accurate loads are with RL 22 and N165

    I use IMR 4350, with a 120 grain Barnes Tipped TSX and CCI 250 mag primer, through a 26" barrel. 3480 fps and 2 1/4 " three shot groups at 300 yards.

    The slower powders (H870, IMR 4831) I tried hit excessive pressure, way before reasonable velocities were approached.

    you might have been loading those really slow powders too light. They don't like that, and will build up excessive pressures for some odd reason (I don't remember why). Magnum cases like real dense loads

    The loads I used were 5% below maximum. Just did not work in my rifle.
