I would think the more dense RL50 load would be a tad more consistent overall. At least you now know where it stands

Am looking forward to the results in the 338 AX. Alliant says it was developed for the 338 LM
That is my reasoning as well but as you said, bullets in the air will make the real decision. If the RL50 load leaves me looking for more, then I will see what the RL33 load does.
