I am thinking of loading subsonic 50 bmg. I have heard of a load using Reddot with 690 gr bullets. I wonder if Trail Boss is a possiblity? Any thoughts will be appreciated. Thanks.

I think trailboss says you can use 70-100% case fill for any cartridge out there, and I hear it's quiet. Only problems I can see are: Can you find trailboss? Is the twist rate fast enough to stabilize that bullet at ~1000 fps?
Proper grammar is awesome.
