    Default 30-378 powder

    I am starting to work up a load for 200 gr Barnes TTSX. I realize that H50BMG comes highly recommended for this caliber/bullet weight and plan on trying some, but am wondering if anyone has any experience with US869 for this caliber? I have used it in 7mm RUM with outstanding results and it is mentioned in some reloading manuals as a possible candidate for the 30-378.

    I've had good luck with Retumbo in other large case cartridges like 300RUM, 338RUM and 338 Lapua. Retumbo works well in places that US869 is recommended. No hands on experience with the 30-378 for me.

    I don't reload for the 30-378 but I like H1000 and Retumbo for the 338-378. But I use heavy for caliber bullets normally. I shoot the 300 gr. SMK or the 300 gr. Berger OTM.
