    I just got a box of 26 gr vg for my .204 at a yardsale for 10 bucks so I said what the heck but not found a lot of data for them I wanted
    To know if I could use the powders I already have for it witch are
    Re-19,22,25 and also have h1000 so if any one has any idea or data using any of these would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks Shawn!!!

    All the powders you have are way to SLOW! You should look for H322, H335, Imr3031, H4895, Imr8208xbr, Benchmark, RL10x, or Alliant Varmint Pro. Probably best suited with around 28-29grns of 8208xbr.

    I used some Vit-N133 with that bullet with good success.
