    I have RL15, H4831, RL19, IMR7828ssc, power pro 2000mr, IMR4350. Which should I use with a 168NBT. This is a new animal for me. Kind of not shore which way to go. Will be used for PA whitetail. I also have some 168 Berger Hybrid. Help me guys!

    I've been loading 2 300SAUMs for many years now. Only 168 bullet was the TSX though. In one rifle I loaded IMR4350 and in the other, H4895.
