Norma powder for 270win. 204 or MRP

After finding a great load for my 270win with Rl22, I can't find the stuff anywhere. I can however find Norma powders. What have you guys had luck with? I'm thinking of either 204 or MRP.

I've heard Rl22 is relabeled MRP but you hear a lot of things online...

Norma MRP is really close to the burn rate of R22. I would drop two grains and work back up. I would think that you will see the same velocities within a grain of R22.

Re: Norma powder for 270win. 204 or MRP

I vote for the MRP also, close or same as RL22, and has been available for the last year, a big plus today.

When supplies increase, switch back, but I bet you wont. Norma powders are some of the cleanest burners I've seen, offset by price of coarse.

Brainstorm: I'm about to build a 6.5-06, was going to buy MRP, but have acquired 30+ lbs of RL 25 in the last 2 months, going to lean hard on the 25 to start with. Though not listed anywhere, 25 is a higher energy powder and may fill the bill for you, pick up a pound and try, it's been rather easy to come by lately. A thought.

Vote for MRP or RL 22

Reloader 22 is not Norma MRP

But very close

RL 22 Very good in the 300 Win and 270 Win

Very close to H4831 also

RL 25 very good in 7mm WSM and the ultra Mags

Bofors makes both MRP and RL22 and also made Winchester WXR. It is most likely the same powder with possible quality differences. It is probably Bofors RP 5. They should all interchange within lot variations .

Re: Norma powder for 270win. 204 or MRP

I've been around the horn w/the 270 Win.

RL-22 is Norma 205 ithat has skipped a ton of QC checks.

Rl-22 is very temp sensitive.

MRP replaced N-205. I understand MRP has been replaced by N-217. . . .??

Allianz 4000MR seems fairly available in my area. Don't know about your area...

4000 puts the above mentioned hands down!!!

IMR 7828 ranks up there pretty good also

Just my experience with my Winny

Roy,
MRP2 was discontinued. They came out with 217, but not to replace MRP2.
Slower than MRP, but faster than MRP2.
