I'm an avid eik hunter new to handloading. I shoot a .300 wby and hunt in grizzly country so my bullet choice is critical. I've settled on the 200 gr. accubond because of it's superior down range perfomance.I was hoping someone could advise me on which powder would provide the best results. I also load nickel plated cases to increase pressures slightly for more velocity.

That's the second time I've heard that in the past year..."....load nickle plated cases to increase pressures...." I don't believe this is a fact even though I like my nickle plated cases I doubt they would withstand anymore pressure then a standard brass case...But......:confused:

REloader-25 is a very impressive powder for 300 wby, especally with 200gr + bullets.

rl-25 is my goto powder for heavy magnum applications.
its even my goto powder for non-heavy magnum apps (25-06). if rl-25 comes up short, rl-22 and h-4831 are good stuff.
