I am getting really excited about my 4th season cow tag! I have been really bummed that I cant find h1000 powder anywhere for my 30-378 (my go to rifle for just about anything, well until I get a 378 why mag) but I am also low key excited about the powder issue as it means I get to start all over with us 869 and the new imr 7977. I really cant think of a better ending for this year other than a late season colorado elk hunt hopefully in the snow lol, with a great weatherby rifle and caliber.

.257

What unit did you draw?
Too bad you can't find H-1000, but it's always fun finding a new load

30" of snow in 2nd rifle in 76 made it impossible to fill our cow tags  in 2018, in fact it snowed almost every day after the big dump. Hopefully we have better luck this year and  hopefully you find a decent load for your rifle before your 4th season starts.  What GMU are you hunting in mtnman?

I drew for gmu 11 which also includes a few other gmu in that area. I found a few decent loads with both powders but I am still trying to find that perfect load
