Picked up a box of these bullets to try in my .300WM and was thinking of trying RL22 and H-1000. Anyone else currently shooting these in the WM?

I'm running them in my 300wm. Running H1000 with CCI250's. Can't remember my oal off the top of my head. Velocity is 2936fps out of a 24" barrel. Sub half MOA if I do my part.

Did a Berger seating depth test starting at 74gr H1000 and ended up at 3.43" oal. Shot a ladder from 74 to 78.5gr. Found a charge range, worked in there and ended up at 76.9gr. played with seating depth a little and ended at 3.422" oal

Of the two you listed I'd go with H1000, however, RL26 is another option to consider and it is exactly what I would start with after using it in several cartridges over the last year. I consistently see a 50-75 fps increase over other popular powders without sacrificing precision or temp stability.

I've shot them in several 300 Win Mags using several different powders, cases, primers. Never tried RL22 though. I like RL26 and H1000, but found a few other powders that work well also. One of my current hunting loads is with RL26 and the 200 gr ELDX.
I have been shooting the 200 gr ELDX since they came out, but now I am migrating toward the 208 ELDM.
Never had a problem with the 200 ELDX, especially on game, my switch has more to do with a pretty little hole in paper at distance.

In all the 300 WM rifles I shoot, my load development with the 200 gr ELDX has helped me with starting points, charge weights, and seating depths with other bullet weights up to the 215 gr Berger.

Good luck to you and keep us posted on how you are doing!
