Does Retumbo powder = a lot of recoil/muzzle blast?

Hi all, I've tried many combinations and am getting great results with 165gr but I also getting massive recoil and muzzle blast with 65gr of Retumbo in a 24" barrel 13.5lbs rifle.

I've tried a similar load (case full of Retumbo) in a 20" 243 Win driving a 105gr A-Max and the muzzle blast/recoil is impressive. A very similar load using H4831 showed minimal recoil (almost same muzzle velocity and powder charge).

My question is this:
Does Retumbo (or any slow burning powder) generate a lot of recoil and huge muzzle blast in 20"-24" barrels?

This reminds me of 357 Mag 125gr Win296 full load fire from a 4" barrel!

Yes, Retumbo will creare a lot of muzzle blast in any short barrel as it is a very slow burning powder. That is why it works so well in long barrels, i.e. more time to burn what's there. Recoil is more noticable as well. The old H-870 was great for this!......Rich

Re: 270 WSM 165gr VLD load help

First Post.

I want to make a load using the 165s in a .270win with Alliant RL22. I used RL22 for the 135SMK with good results, and have been looking for a HighBC Heavier .270 for 2 years.

Anyone have a load data on the 165s for a .270 Win?

THANKS!

You can start by using Nosler 160gr Partition data and cut the start loads by 3gr to be safe. I reload 270 WSM so can't help you more than that.
