    Anyone out there shooting this combination? I was thinking of trying it with either R22, Retumbo, or H1000. I picked up a box from Lerch and wanted to play around it. It would be limited strictly to single shot so I could seat it just off of the lands. I tried searching but could only find some development data from Shawn's Edge.

    Hodgdon just updated their website. They have data for both retumbo and h1000 for the 300gr smk.

    Thanks a lot- I was wondering when they would get around to updating it.
