I can't imagine this powder working real well in a wsm case. Be curious to see if it does.

I'd say it should be a good choice . I'd start at 72.0 grains and work towards 76 - 77.0 . it looks like 3000 FPS could be achievable .

Re: Reloder 33

I could be wrong but I'm thinking 33 is going to be too slow f the 7 WSM. Start a couple grains higher than you would with Retumbo or H1000. I would be curious to hear of the results.

33 Could be good in the 270 WSM.... maybe, definitely in the 6.5 WSM

RL33 looks real good on quickload for the 7mm wsm .

Re: Reloder 33

I may have to try some of this in my 338 EDGE AI. But temp sensitivity is going to be a concern.

Re: Reloder 33

CA 48,

Do you have any information on RL-33 being temp sensitive? I have not seen any differences in the rifles I have loaded from 59 to 90 degrees. Know that is not the best test will do more chronographing and shooting some time this winter.

Certain there are many loaders waiting for any results.

Re: Reloder 33

AZShooter, how much of a velocity change did you see on average? I've been considering trying some in my 7STW IF I can find some. Any of you guys tried any RL33 in your STW's? Or does anybody have some input on RL33 in a STW?
