    I'm finishing up a 300 Win Mag for a client and he is going to run 210VLDs in the new rig. I have Reloader 22 and H4831sc on hand to try. Does H1000 or Retumbo or any others have enough to offer to justify buying some?

    I know RL22 will provide the Velocity and accuracy, but it is less temp stable than Hodgdon from my experience.

    Any loads or experience is greatly appreciated.

    I haven't tried R22, but have used H4831sc, H1000, and Retumbo. Norma brass, 210 Hunting VLD's loaded -010" off the lands, Fed215's. I get .5MOA or better with all three powders out of my Rem 700 Milspec, 24" barrel. H4831sc - 72gr, 2800FPS, H1000 - 75.5gr, 2800FPS, Retumbo - 79gr, 2880FPS. I settled on Retumbo. In my rifle it gave the highest velocity, best ES in the 5-10FPS range, and I have found Retumbo to give excellent temperature stability. While I had no pressure signs, I'd still start a couple of grains lower with all these charges.
