    Does anyone use h- 4831sc powder in their 300rum if so what kind of results did you get? I currently use h-1000 but with the powder shortages we have today a feller can't be to picky thanks in advance for your feed back.......

    Yes.

    I like 4831sc with the lighter bullets (Up to 180gr) but for 180+ I use slower powders
    like the H869 and 50bmg.

    H 4831sc measures well and produces low SDs and good groups.

    I shoot 200 and 220gr bullets and don't have a load for the 210 bergers ,But if you start at around 98 grs and work up you will be ok.

    I load 104grs behind the 220gr but I do have .050 thousandth bullet jump with my load
    and with the bergers you probably are seated long and within 4 or 5 thousandths of the
    lands, so you will have to back off on the loads I use.

    It is good powder and well worth trying.

    I hope this helps.

    BE CARFULL
