Hank, I have never used AA8700 or 5010, as unfortunately to my knowledge they have never been imported to Oz.
However, there may be another powder to throw in the mix. Evidently Vihtavouri N570 is now in the market place, as Lapua Australia told me that next Tuesday my order of N570 (and 20N29) is due to arrive.
I am assuming that N570 is available in the US, as historically powders are available in the US well before we see them in Oz.
I read one report on a gun forum, that in a 300 RUM with 200 grain bullet, N570 was about 5 grains slower burning than Re 25, and a similar amount faster burning than his H870. I was hoping that it would be slower burning than that.
I will initially try N570 in my .224 Clark with the 85 and 100 grain bullets, and in my 257W with bullets in the 100 - 130 grain range. I will post a report on my initial test results. Hope that the above is of interest. Brian.
