Re: 7mm Allen Magnum/RL33/180 gr Berger testing

Thanks for the info. It will be interesting to get some hard data on temp sensitivity...especially since I have a new jug sitting on the reloading bench.

Thanks for the tests.

Re: 7mm Allen Magnum/RL33/180 gr Berger testing

I've played with RL17 in a 24" 7-08 . I'm getting 3080 fps with a 140 berger , no pressure signs and good brass life . RL33 is supposedly using the same technology as RL 17 . I expect it will also be a good powder for increasing velocity . I've just bought a 8 pound jug of RL33 and some 300 gr accubonds for a new 30" 338 lapua . I'm still waiting on a few things before I can get shooting this rifle , so I have no data to share . thanks for sharing your info . BTW , I don't seem to have the temp sensitivity issue with RL17 or RL22 that I always read about . Jim
