    Has anyone tried Retumbo with 165gr bullets in a 300WM? I know its not listed as a recommended powder until you get up to the 200gr+ bullets but I have a bunch of Retumbo and a lot of 165gr SGK's. Top velocity is not a concern.

    Thanks for any input.

    A bit slow powder wise for sure, but a compressed charge should shoot fine. There have been a few threads on retumbo in the win. lately; if you use the search function you'll find them.
