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.

    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.
