    Reloader 19 works good if you can get some.

    I've also used IMR4350 with 130gr SST that work pretty well. I started at 58gr 4350 with hornady 130gr sst gave me 3150fps.

    Thats the only load of the SST or IMR 4350 that I loaded. I didnt do any fine tuning or trying to get the most of it. So it may vary for you. start low and work up. good luck

    What weight bullets are you shooting? I have used IMR-4350 with 140 grains Accubonds. I have also loaded RL-17 with 130grain Accubonds. The IMR-4350 load has been my most accurate load and has produced a velocity of 3050+ ft/sec. I use 60.5 grains of IMR-4350 which is listed as max load in the Nosler #6 manual.

    The Alliant Web site lists a max of 62 grains of RL-17 with a 130 grains BTSP bullet. This is the load that I shot in my gun but I have not gotten the accuracy that I am looking for and I have not checked the velocity.

    What part of Mexico are you in? Rl17 works great in my 300 WSM I think it would work great in the 270 WSM as well.
