Sure seems to be a link with the H110 and the whisper cartridge and it doesn't look good????
Is it possible that since the majority of people starting out loading 300 Whisper use H110, it may be a coincidence that H110 was involved in the three examples you cite?
It's also alittle suspect that both your bolt gun barrel and an AR barrel that the same gunsmith made have both had issues but I guess that could be a coincidence as well.
I'm interested to read about any other issues with H110 as I currently have some loads with it I am testing.
I also have 2400 and #9 but I haven't got that far yet.
I think loading a wildcat with fast powders and heavy bullets does not leave alot of margin for error with new reloaders.
I am not saying you are a new reloader but I bet that does play into some part of the equation in some cases.
