    RL17 will most likely get you the best velocity.

    I'm currently using 56.5 gr of RL17 with 168 gr Bergers. I'm getting 3050 fps out of a 28" barrel with no pressure signs. I plan on trying H1000 or H4831sc because of the temp stability.

    Are you finding RL17 to be temp sensitive?

    I haven't had a chance to shoot it in warm weather but I'm told that over about 80 degrees the RL powers will be hot. I'm looking for a powder that I can shoot prairie dogs in the summer and coyotes in the snow with the same drops.

    Alliant "claims" that RL17 is temp stable at higher temps. I've read conflicting user reports on it. I'll be experimenting this spring with my 25-06.
