    I use 2208 mostly but RL15 is also pretty good in this case. I reckon ww748 would be fine.

    Guys use 2206h in the .35 whelen, so itís probxbly another option.

    BLC - 2 is supposed to be amazing. Nitro express has a few loads on it. I use 2208, but a very mild load to regulate with my open sights.

    BLC-2 is the go for speed, in my 20" Sako, 60gr Varget in my husky, I've tried several powders, any medium burn powder will work well, CFE.223 and BLC-2 give great speed,
    Reloader 15,16,17, 4895, H414, win 748 are great powders,
    I have the 250 gr Accubond at 2650fps with 65gr R17 and the 270 speer, @2510 with 62 gr BLC-2 striking same point of impact at 200m, these are stiff loads, work up.
    Its very easy to get the Med bores to shoot well, everything I've loaded has shot inside a 1" at 100m in 3 rifles.
