Have a .264 Win. Mag. set up for long range bench shooting and I have a decent load using H-1000. Problem is that it doesn't come close to filling up the case (about 75%). I seem to have pressure problems using Retumbo so the next slower powder is H-50. I figure that I sould get a nice full case and still get 2900-3000 fps froma 140 SMK.

Thanks in advance.

Been having very good success with the H50BMG in my RUM and 240gr MK. I am sure that it will also work for you.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
