Whats your thoughts on this new powder from Hodgdon. On a whim I picked some up at my local gun shop. I here it is working quite well with large cap cases and heavier bullets, but I wanted to try it out on my 130 gr 270 wsm's for chits & grins. Full cases or compression loads I presume. I still have to work out the correct starting loads, for what loading info I have found start with the 140 gr. Any suggestions or thoughts? I have had good results with H-870 (now discontinued)for my 7mm mag in the past, and with others on here using slower powders with good results I figured it was worth a shot.

I use it in my 264 Win Mag with 140`s. It is slower than H1000.

My 300 mag likes it for heavier bullets (180gr+) as well as a 25-06 with 115gr. Bergers. Both like the H1000 more so I'll be sticking with it.

Thanks Guys
I think I will start with 66 grains & work up to 73 max if I can stuff that much
I saw a load on the net Barnes xbt 140 gr 71 gr max
I will load the Hornady 130 Interbond, with mag primers for better ignition
