Re: R-17 for my 270 WSM

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

Re: R-17 for my 270 WSM

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.
