I bought some wc867 powder.I want to try it in my 338-378 ,my 264 wm ,243 win ,300 win mag and maybe 3006 and 308 .Has anyone else used this powder .Its about the same burning rate as h870 .It should do good with heavy bullets in most calibers .I want to use it with 300 gr bullets with the 338-378 and 155 gr in the 264 win mag .The rest will be mainly trial and error .

A little powder comparison. WC872, WC867, MagPro and R-33


Shot in a 264 Winchester 24" barrel. Mag Pro was also shot. All with 129 gr IB Rem case 215 primer.

Mag Pro 69 gr. 3020 FPS

872 69 gr. 2639 FPS

867 69 gr 2883 FPS

872 77gr. 3022 FPS

867 77gr. 3278 FPS

Previous shot R-33 129 IB rem & fed

72 gr. 2839 FPS

77 gr. 3094 FPS

Note: This rifle digests more powder than another 264 with a new Lilja barrel.
I have not tested bullets heavier than 140 and the above was 129 Hornady Interbonds

I got this for $4 a pound nit bad got a bunch .It is suppose to be awesome in the 264 with heavier bullets which is what I use 155 gr lapua .It should work awesome in my 338-378 with 300 gr bullets .I got tired of chasing powder .A couple of years ago thus powder was .18 a pound if you bought pallets full if it 2000 pounds at a time dang should have gotten it then.I use to use reloader 25 but it disappeared and got $35 a pound .I still have bunch of h870 its awesome in 264 !
