    BH,

    I can't say that it is all consistant, but the lots of it and RL25 I have used have certainly been in the last two years. I think the recall was quite some time ago, or it was common knowledge way back. I've got a can of it too, I never did use it tho.

    I have a test I did with RL25 not too long ago, probably July, where I tested 3 different lot #'s, 25180, 25108, 25057. I can send you the results from the Oehler 43 if you like.

    When I test mine in cold weather, they are totally cold saturated, so I know my ammo isn't warmer and giving me BS info as far as temperature stability. I believe Hodgdon is full of BS in that they have the only temp stable powder going. I use Hodgdon and Alliant, both are the best powder out there in my opinion.

    Brent,

    my experience with RL22 shows a variance not only on the chrono but in accuracy in particular with different lots. Also as humidity and temp go up ie into the high 90 degrees and humidity with it pressure goes up with it much faster than other powders. I am sure that is not a factor in Alaska.

    I have shot RL22 at 99 degrees and 97% humidity and had velocity go up over 160 fps and pierce every primer and in fact the gas coming through the primer broke the sear on 2 triggers in two days and bent a mainspring on a third. This was a very good load that worked well at low 90 degree temps and mid 50-70 humidity. I had to drop over 2.4 grains to get the pressures and velocity back down.

    BH

    BH, how does humidity affect a round that was loaded in a less humid environment. or were you loading them during the high humidity?

    That some pretty extreme changes, ouch.

    I have to be with JB on this one! I haven't had any problems with Re22 at all. I have always bought it in pound cans and have used
    a very large quantity and have had no problems. I have also used Hodgdon powder and it has the same shift that the Re series of powder has. ALL powder has a shift with the weather and I mean ALL! I have not had any noticable shift with different lots of Re22. I also use Re19 and Re25 and have had no problems. I like Hodgdon and Alliant powders alot and use alot of both brands but have yet to see a difference in quality!
