Product Overview

US 869 is a 50 BMG propellant that offers significant advantages in many magnum rifle applications!

A true magnum spherical rifle powder, it is superb with heavy bullets in big, overbore rifle cartridges. US869 is a dense propellant that allows the shooter to use enough powder to create maximum velocities in cartridges such as the 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum, 300 Remington Ultra Magnum, 30-378 Weatherby Magnum and others. It offers a superior solution for 50 Caliber BMG, where it yields high velocity and great accuracy with 750- to 800-grain projectiles. This is a fine 1000-yard match propellant!

Available in 1 lb. and 8 lb. containers.

    The powder works well in my 6.5prc, honestly wasn't my first or second choice but it's all you had and it works.

    I loaded my 30-378 Weatherby Mag 180 gr Swift and 6.5x300 135 gr Hornady A Tip, starting 4.0 grains below max. My new Caldwell Chronograph registered 3235 fps and 3456 fps 3 shot average respectfully. I was shooting at almost 6,ooo ft elevation, but still, that's extremely fast. My cousin with his chronograph is going with me next week and we'll see what it reads. Groups were sub moa @ 200 yards, so if the velocity is accurate, max load is unnecessary and something I don't wish to see. Burns a little dirty but that's the amount of retardant I believe. Amazing powder.
