    Okay gentilmen, after prowling around this site for a while I've decided it's neccesary to jump into reloading. I have picked a bullet (190gr. SMK), Brass (winchester), and primer (fed 215), but I need a little help with the powder. I've read or heard somewhere that slightly compressed loads were more consistent, and was wondering which of these powders would accomplish this while being least affected by temperature?
    IMR 4350
    Alliant reloader 22
    Hodgdon H-1000
    If none of these will get it done please advise me on some other brand or type.
    Thanks in advance

    Think you might want to look at H4831 and Fed 210M instead of the 215. Many timnes the 215 does not work as well as the 210.

    Go the Hawks ridge website for NC 1000 yard club and see their match results and for the 300 win mag loads.
