    bought some 168 bergers to try and have H1000, H4831 and IMR4831. Was thinking bout using the H1000 but wanted to get some opinions. Powder is getting hard to come by so i am looking for a good starting point. had good luck with 160 accubonds with H1000 3212 fps and .5 to 1" groups.

    Berger e-mailed me a load of 76.5gr H1000 for 2981 fps.
    I use 79.8 gr Retumbo for 3125fps in my 26" barrel.
    Start low !

    Thanks i had my best loads with 160 accubonds with h1000 at 79 to 3206 fps ave. My only concern now is i didnt realize how long the bergers are and i have a dang box magazine. did yo fidn the Retumbo worked better in the STW?
