Alliant Reloader 15

Hey guys,

A have a question concerning this powder. I use it in a .220 Swift. I have been told that this is an extremely hot and corrosive/errosive powder and that I should stop using it. Is there any truth in this at all? If so, what should I be using instead? I only shoot about 3 rounds then let my barrel cool down between shots, so I am not sure if the heat of the powder is an issue, or would it be if it is really THAT hot. Thanks for the info.

Can't say how it runs in a 220 swift, but in a 223 and 308win with alot of milage on them I've seen no adverse effects.
Would recommend it as a good powder for accuracy and versatility.

Kirby actually recommended that powder to me instead of the IMR3031 & 4064 I was using.

Re: Alliant Reloader 15

Have had nothing but good luck with RL-15 here.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
