    I am looking for some load data for a 300 weatherby with the 208 amax bullet. I was wanting to try rl25 and retumbo powders cause that's what I have on hand since I can't find any h-1000. But I have searched and can't seam to find any info. The rifle still has factory free bore and has a 30 inch hart barrel on it. Thanks for any help
