I can crowd 3000' with the 230's which isn't bad in a .308 diameter. I would really like to get my hands on some RL-33.......Rich

Re: New 30/375 wildcat

Powder Valley had some not too long ago. If you were closer I'd hook you up with some Rich. I bought 8lbs of it. If you can fit enough of it there is some extra velocity to be had. In my 6.5-300wm it took 75grs of R-33 pretty easy and 70grs of Retumbo is max. I gained about 50-60fps.

Man, that stuff is slower than I thought! It might work if I was using some 230's?........Rich

You might run out of capacity before you get velocity. It would probably be better in a .300RUM.

Nathan, have you tried R33 in your edge with a 300 grainer yet?
