    Anyone running or did load work with H1000 and 225 ELDM bullets? Just getting an idea of powder start for load work. Thanks in advance.

    My AIAX likes Bertram brass, 84 gr of H1000 with the 225 ELD-M. My 20" 300 NM hunting rifle did too. 20 thou of the lands, cci 250 magnum primers. 84 gr is close to max.

    What are your velocities out of the 20" NM? Do you shoot it with a brake or suppressed?

    Appreciate the info. I kinda thought it would be that realm as I am running around 87 gr of Retumbo with 215s. I will tinker around the 84 realm a grain above and below. Running Peterson brass and it seems to be very stout.

    The Peterson brass is tougher than a $2 steak, proceed with confidence!
