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.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
