    Anybody have any good loads using this powder. I was going to use H1000 but i'm running low on powder and I can't find anymore and need that powder for my 30-378. Thanks

    Heck, I'd use the H50bmg in your 30-378 and run the h1000 in your 300 win. The 300 win does rather well with a stout dose of 50bmg type powder (especially ball stuff) and a heavy pill but the case capacity is a bit lacking to get to full pressure with stick powder.
    I have run 86 aa 8700 with a 220 sierra rn before in a 300 win and it was decent, but only 2600 fps or so. I really doubt you'll get much over 80 grains h50bmg in the case before you run out of capacity. You really aren't going to go over-pressure here (case capacity is too lacking) so if you want to shoot anyway knowing you'll be a couple of hundred fps low, have at it.

    Ditto. Consider using the H50 in your 30-378.

    I have a hunt coming up and don't want to change powders right now. So does anyone have any loads for the 300?

    H50 is pretty slow for a win bud. Look for like 7828 or 4831 or h1000 imo
