    H869 is sold by Hodgdon and has a burn rate "similar" to the discontinued H870.

    If you are building a 338Lapua AI the 2 best powders we have found are RL25 and H1000 if you are using 300gr SMK's.
    I am shocked you are asking this question, I thought you and your friend had the magic combination for any distance and game with a much smaller caliber ??? I stand corrected.

    MRP2 works great in the 338 AI also.

    I was able to achieve best accuracy/velocity and Extreme Spread (less than 5) with US 869 and 300gr SMK in a 338 RUM. (velocity @ 60*F is 3725 MV)

    Roy do you mean 2725 FPS? 3725 is REALLY fast...
