RL22 is the most accurate powder in my 300 Mag, H1000 is second and more temp stable. RL22 would be slightly slower than H4350, it works great for 180gr and heavier bullets.

rl22 is usually at a full case or slightly compressed with most bullet weights in the 300win. I use it with 165 grain hornady pills in my lh browning a-bolt ss boss and get about 3250 fps muzzle velocity with 3 shot cloverleafs and ten shots rapid fire into an inch. Yep it's a bit slower if cold and a bit faster when warm, but it's predictable and being double base has higher energy content per weight than single base so it'll usually net higher velocity per pressure.
