How is it that you select the powder. Im going to buy my first bottle for the .35 rem (my dies com tommorow hopefully) so its getting close to finally starting reloading. Ive been thinking about getting some Hodgdon H-Varget. H-Varget powder is the second fastest for 200gr bullets, and it fills the case the most (usable is 2.85cc, it fills it to 2.63cc). So i think for starting out this would be a good choice since i can really see how my loads compare before seating the bullet. For 180gr bullets, it fills it to 2.7cc. and is the second fasted. All these is for the starting loads, not the max loads. Has anyone used H-Varget powder before. BTW, when a max load is to be compressed, how much do you compress it (for now, i dont plan on going too close to the max load, but just for reference.).
