and Retumbo in the 25-06. I think that nitriding my barrel will reduce the pressure curve allowing me to use a faster burning powder like RL17. like I've mentioned in other posts, this is just a theory so we will see. If RL17, SP, or Retumbo don't deliver good velocities, I might try N5-70 but if your getting 100% capicity without a nitrided barrel, I suspect it may be too slow for a nitrded barrel.
Did you try 215's at all? Maybe I'll try 215's and 210's. I like the idea of using 215's in case of extreme cold temps.
I agree, RL-17 does amazing things in my Patriot, like 168 TTSX' at near 3400 amazing
I need to verify that again but the initial test was jaw dropping. I haven't used a single primer except the 210 in my 6.5. LTLR recommended them (where did he go anyway?) So that's where I started.
