Norma Powders

Looking for experiences with the Norma powder line. Specifically MRP2.

A number of years ago I dumped a couple of pounds out of factory Weatherby ammo. So I am thinking about running it.

Re: Norma Powders

Read These:

http://www.huntchat.com/showthread.php?t=18529

The FAL Files - Uses for Norma 205......

Reloader's Nest Forum - Norma MRP Powder?

Finally, Powder Burn Rates

It has been my long standing understanding that for example, RL-22 = MRP/205 with the RL-22 undergoing significantly less QC steps, thus the temp sensitivity.

I use/d both in a 270 win. 205 was more consistent (low ES) with hardly any temp sensitivity.

As usual start a bit low and increase till the bolt won't open.

Re: Norma Powders
