Apparently Remington is keeping their hands off of the Barnes Operation.

Weatherby makes great products, but it is the people at Weatherby that make the company outstanding!!
Also it is people like BB340 that sees things like this and posts it right away to help whoever reads it is what makes the WeatherbyNation outstanding!!
My hat is off to everyone involved!!

your over thinking this, you need to start working up some loads with the powders you have, and find the load your rifle shoots accurate.  I've had pretty good results with alliant powders in the 257.

By the way, guys, just so you know what kind of people run the Weatherby company, this is Weatherby's VP, Mike Schwiebert, responding to the Barnes:

"So sorry to hear about the recall. We’re happy to help however we can.  Jameson Parker is our Weatherby Nation moderator and he’ll get this posted. Please let me know if we can do anything else to help you guys.
All the best."

Absolutely typical of Weatherby and Mike Schwiebert: concerned and eager to help.

Guys,
Barnes has announced a recall of its VOR-TX 300 WBY 180gr ammunition. (http://www.barnesbullets.com/product-safety-recall-notice-300-weatherby-180-grain-ttsx-vor-tx-ammunition/) BB340 has already received the recall and posted it (Thank you!), but please be aware.

Alright fellas, riddle me this.  IIRC, for an 80 grain projectile loaded with 19, 22 and 25 there is about 125FPS ES and about 40FPS between each powder charge unique to each powder listed above.  However there is about 5 grains total difference between 19 and 25 with 22 in the middle.

Why load 5 grains more if it is not needed?  This assumes accuracy does not suffer.

I hope I made sense.

Thank you for your time.
