If it is matching your other loads velocity, it is probably doing so with less pressure. I'm guessing it might work well in the 270 WSM shooting something like the Matrix 175's

Did you see this thread by Kirby? Looks like it did very well in his 7 AM. The kernels are a large diameter but fairly short, so almost like a spherical.

I'd like to hear results if you try it in your 338RUM.

Re: Reloder 33

I don't know Roy, I kinda wondered about the possibility of bridging in my little 6.5 SS but from what I've read on it you run into issues if your not close to filling the case and the powder slams into the neck and stops, R33 fills the case so I just rocked on!

I figured if I can run the same velocities with a gentler launch that would be good enough for me, in my little 6.5 SS I think R33 would shine under those 160 Matrix!
Same for the 270 WSM and the 165 and 175 Matrix, after this hunting season I'll pull the 6.5 SS barrel and try it in my 270 WSM and 7 RUM.

Re: Reloder 33

Shot it in a 7 Mag with good performance out of a 180 gr bullet until it got hot out this summer and the load started blowing primers out so Im not so sure about the temperature sensitivity.

Re: Reloder 33

I'll snag me a bottle and give it a go.

However, it's difficult to NOT have a large void in the 270 AM case with any of the powders. If 33 even approaches 7828ssc and PP 4000 MR it will most probably work.

If I haven't ruined the barrel shooting those Nosler ABLRs or LRABs or whatever they're called. See that problem thread.

Re: Reloder 33

I have a 7mm wsm with a 26" Brux 9" twist bbl. I have 2 lbs of Re#33. What would be a starting load pushing a 180 gr Sierra bullet ?
