hmmm.... Sorry, this got past me. I got 3193 with the 180 E-Tips.

Re: 280 AI replacement for 270 Win.

claims could be true with RE-17

I got 168smks to do 3100 out of my 26" 280AI with VV-N560
i had 162gr A-maxs at over 3000 but they are at 2930 for accuracy reasons

Ive tried it in my 6X47 lapua and am yet to see a velocity increase. deffinatly seen a accuracy decrease. ill keep pushing with it tho and see where i get. just waiting for a fine calm day

My 7wsm will run 162s @ 2950 out of my 24in abolt with retumbo stuffed in the case. I think I have several loaded and may not need any this season but as soon as I start to reload for it we will be checking the velocity with rl 17. If anyone else has any other data using the RL 17 be sure to chime in.

Todd,
What did you finally determine for MVs with RL 17? Curious minds want to know... could you post an update if you've any additional data/numbers to share? thanks,

Todd,

Anything more to report? Any reduction in ES with the non-magnum large rifle primers? RL17 velocities still running ~3140 fps with 162 AMAX?

I'm maxing out at about 3030 fps with a 280 RCBS improved with Retumbo powder out of a Brux 28" barrel.

At 53 grs I only got about 2880fps. 55grs gave me 3000fps. I have gone up to 57.5 grs and got about 3150 and just starting to get some pressure. This is with a 27" Krieger barrel. Now, the load that shoots the best is 3050 and that load is shooting sub 2" groups at 500 yards. Not 2 MOA, 2 inches, a few times much less around an 1 1/5. At 100 it burns a single hole. I've checked this load over a Pact Pro and an Oehler 35P and these are real numbers. Sorry if a particular 7 mag wont do it. Pressure handling has a lot to do with the chamber, barrel, lug contact, brass, etc. The guy isnt telling a lie and I dont think he is full of crap either. Is it the norm, I wouldnt think so BUT I'm hearing of more and more people getting great numbers from Reloader 17. I know two guys getting 3000fps with 180s in a 284Win. I'm going to try those too as soon as they get here.
LRangepro,

Are you talking MV from a 7mm Rem Mag or a 280 AI? 'toddconley' is talking 3120-3160 fps from a 280 AI with 162 gr AMAXs. If you're talking a 7mm Rem Mag then you would have to increase the powder charges to get similar velocity with the larger cased 7mm Rem Mag. Reason I ask is because your post made reference to 7 mag.

My 7mm Rem Mag accuracy/hunting load with 168 VLDs is also ~3050 fps from my 24 3/8" Tikka T3 using Hodgdon Retumbo.

Re: 280 AI replacement for 270 Win.

My M700 24" Hart barrel 280 AI shoots the 160 gr AB to 3019 fps and the 140 gr AB to 3240 fps with MAX loads of RL 22 and a GM215M primer. Accuracy is excellent.

Re: 280 AI replacement for 270 Win.

This thread inspired me to try RL17 in my 280AI. I have loaded some at 52 gr, 52.5 gr and 53 gr and will shoot for velocity, not this weekend but the next.

Will let you know.
