MagPro powder for 270 WSM

Has anyone had any luck with this powder and the WSM cartriges. I had not heard of it until I saw listed in the new Nosler loading manual. I plan to load 140 gr. Acubond bullets. I also thought of trying Berger hunting bullets.

I like the Bergers in my 300 WSM! They did well on my 200 yd Antelope. Expanded without blowing up.

My dad has a 270 WSM and uses Magpro with heavy bullets successfully. He likes the ease of throwing charges.

If throwing is not an issue, I think I might lean towards a Hodgden Extreme propellant like H1000, Retumbo,etc. or R22/R25.

I have loaded with it in the .270 WSM. Real fast velocities. Decent accuracy.

Yes, great accuracy and velocity with 140 gr Hornady BTSP for me at about 2 grains under max.
