I'm shooting fewer and fewer overbore magnums where this powder appears to shine. Going to see how much I can stuff in a 6.5 rpm though just for fun, retumbo works great so far.Maybe, maybe not? Can't have enough powder these days, I'v 2 #8 for 28 Nosler, 300 RUM, 6.5x284 Norma.
If it were me, and I do have Ramshot Magnum (no H1000), I would still use the H1000 type speed powder's, with bullets lighter than 175gr. This comes from using 7STW since it's inception.Just picked up some lrt for my 28 nosler . I was useing h1000 and was having problems getting it to shoot the 168 barns .droped to 150 and my groups were better . Now that the hunting season is over im going to try the 168 s again with the LRT. i know alot of guys useing berger but i dont want to eat lead thats why i went with barns i have only been reloading for a year so im still a beginer any tips appreciated.

What barrel length/twist?
I found good loads for this in my 264 win mag (26" 8 twist just over 3200FPS with 140 speer gold dot) and my 7mm-300 win (27" X-Caliber 5R 8 twist and 195 Berger at 2900 +) I started at 72 grains and worked up in both rifles.Just picked up a keg of this stuff, honest question why is it so cheap? Half price of vihta vuori and 30% less than hodgdon/imr.
