I use Hogdon US 869 in my 6.5-300 With Good results.

Anyone try using it with 300 WBY?

Its the same case, I'm wondering if I can try loads out using same load charges and work up?

I cant find any data anywhere using this powder with 300 WBY, but a lot of loads for the 6.5-300. Doesnt make sense to me

Might with 200 or 220 grain bullets. Other wise velocities would suffer.

869 is slower than I'd want in the 300Wby. I'll second H1000 and add IMR7828ssc and RL22 to the "you should try" list.

Imr 4955 works very well with 168 gr e-tips in my 300 wby mark v,  about 1/2 moa at 100 yds. Feed it 79.5 grs of that powder.
