    what powder would you guys recommend for a 338 Lapua with 280-285 grain bullets
    i have H1000, H4831, and Retumbo on hand and want to use one of these.
    Which one of these would give me the best velocities without giving up accuracy

    Thanks in advance

    Try the H1000 and retumbo and see which one gives you the best results. From what I have read in precious posts H1000 has given many people very good results with 300 gr bullets so both should work fine with 250 and 285 gr.
