    Hello Darryl
    I would like to try some in the 30-378.
    What can you tell me about the 5010. I heard that it is good for the 30-378. Do they still make this powder or is it surplus?
    I'm just starting to load and test and value any suggestions you care to share.

    Thank you.

    Hello Cam

    I would not use 5010 in my 30/378.

    I know of one 30/378 that was shot out in 600 rounds using it.
    It is a large stick powder that likes to eat barrels and I'm NOT kidding.

    Get some H870 or WC 872 and it will do just fine.

    Email me for load information and let me know what action and barrel length you have.

    Later

    Cam,

    If you decide you want some, Bartlett Reloaders has it: www.gibrass.com . It's about 4/lb bought in bulk as pulldown.
