I have been thinking about trying it in my 300 Remington ultra mag with 199 grain hammers. Does anybody have a starting load or any idea what is the burning rate of this powder? I heard it's very close to retumbo but some are saying that it's closer to h869 which is super slow

Relative burn rate info:

All the available 300 RUM data for monos is the 180gn Barnes TSX, so looking between that and the 200-220 grain info my judgement call would be start at 88gn, but you'll have to look at the charts yourself.

QuickLoad says 100.8 grains of LRT (which would be a compressed load) would send a 200-grain Nosler Accubond at 3,056 fps with a maximum chamber pressure of 64,786 psi.
