I've reloaded for the 338LM since January of '06, but since my TRG-42 is an older 1:12" twist, I'm stuck with the 250s, for the most part.
This being said, I have four powders that are almost interchangeable for me: H-4831sc (my go to powder), VV-165 (almost tied with 4831sc), VV-170 and H-1000, with RL-25 waiting in the wings.
Point being is, is that it shouldn't be too hard to find a viable substitute, whether shooting the 250s, 285s and 300s.
