130 gr bullet in 300 win mag

Got a buddy who is loading some screamers but has not had luck with his load development. I used to load 300 win, but the lightest I ever loaded was 150's. He is using varget, but I think it is a bit fast burning. I recommended H4350, RL22, or H4831, and my top recommendation was h
H1000 because it worked great on my 150s. Not requesting data. Looking for powder recommendations from anyone who has loaded this weight in 300 win or similar cartridges. Thanks

Dont really know why, but my Ruger M77R in 300WM likes IMR 4350 in 130 gr, 150 gr, and 180 gr. Ive tried a lot of different powders but the IMR gives the most consistant results.
No such thing as a stupid question. What is stupid is not asking it.
