Re: poweder problems
I'm kind of in the same boat as you with my rifle. I don't seem to be getting the same grouping abilities as with powders with less capacities. I have a load using H1000 that is almost compressed and shoots wonderfully. I then tried shooting RL17 and with even a ten degree temp change, the rifle is shooting erratic pressure sign changes and groupings. The nice thing is that I am getting the speeds I want. The H1000 load shoots considerably slower, but it group at .5MOA where the RL17 is currently shooting .733.
I hope this helps.
