    Anybody load this anymore? I want to use H1000. I got a good load with Winchester Magnum Powder, but they don't make it anymore.

    I tried H1000 with 110 AB's in a 26" Sendero 25-06. I got about 3300 fps. I started at 54 gr but forget what I maxed out at. RL17 did a lot better in my rifle.

    I was at the gun show in Denver last weekend and I saw lots of Win 760 and 780 Supreme. Also Accurate Mag Pro. These could work for you.
    Did you mean Ramshot Magnum or Winchester WMR?

    Winchester Magnum Rifle Powder. Long time ago I traded for 16 pounds of the stuff, and had a good load for several rifles I own. But I ran out a couple years ago, and now I am running out of loaded rounds. I load for all the family, and some of them shoot a lot. The reason I wanted to use H1000, because it works in the other guns I load for. That way I would buy 1-8 pounder, when I find primers.
    What I want to load with the H1000,

    8mm Rem Mag,
    7mm Rem Mag,
    7 STW,
    300 Win Mag,
    270 Win,

    I use 115 Gr Nosler Ballistic tips and 120 Gr. Nosler Partitions and H 1000 is the best consistant groups that I can get.

    When I started loading for my 25-06 I didn't listen to my friend. I thought I could throw rocks and get a tighter group. Talke to my friend and he said "Use the 115-117grn Sierra bullet and IMR-4831 and it will shoot". I went to my manual, picked a middle range load, 51grns IMR-4831 and went to the range. After three shoots I was really unhappy. I could only see one shot. After I fired five rounds I went to look at the target. Five rounds outside to outside .387inches. I stopped looking for a load. Chronographed at 3128 fps avg.

    I've got an Ackley-ized 25-06 and tried H-1000 with the Accubond and couldn't get the groups I wanted. IMR-7828SSC worked great for me. I'm still tayloring it but the first charge with the 7828 was better than the 15-20 I tried with H-1000. Like you I wanted it to work because I already had about nine pounds of it.

    I bought a 25-06 this year and did a lot of looking online to see what others said would work at 100+ grains. It seems like most every powder in the IMR 4350 and slower range has been recommended. I settled in on IMR 4831 with the Berger 115 Hunting VLD bullets, but will be looking for loads to try with 110 Accubonds and 100 Gr TSX's. I will be starting with IMR 4831 and 4350, along with RL17, 19, and 22, as well as H1000 and Retumbo. Somehting in there should work.

    Good Luck and report back.
