Ramshot Magnum seems to perform well in mine. Last 4 shot group went .240 with an average of 3357 fps. Still early in the load development process.

Sounds good Mark. It will be good to have other options since I can't seem to find Ramshot powders anywhere and I've only got 1 pound of it.

Chris, my rifle was built by Justin Sipp. He is very talented and a real gentleman to work with on everything. The load that was developed for the 26 Nosler rifles he builds is:
130 grain Nosler Accubond
80 grains Retumbo
Nosler brass
Fed 215 primer OAL 3.300"
3650 FPS

I'll let you know on Friday, I'm going to compare it to some Nosler Factory Ammo

I heard slowing the twist will help with pressure to gain velocity, 12 twist interesting.
3650 with a 130 is bad ***

I have a 9 twist 27" 264wm and I am running 120ttsx at 3400 so man that is cool.
