    Hey guys,

    Does anyone here use Hodgdon Varget in a .300wm?

    I got some for my 30-06, and was wondering about the .300wm.

    I know its a faster burning powder, but was just curious about results.

    It won't work for a .300 Win mag, it's too fast. It's almost too fast for a .30-06, however I do load it for my father's Ruger No. 1 in a .30-06 using a 150g bullet. It shoots fine for him and is what he wants.

    That's really fast powder for that cartridge. Maybe jump up to reloader19. Or H4831. If your set on varget I would stick with a really light bullet.
