Re #17 up dates for 6x284

That powder is amazing !In my 26" bbl 6x284 53.7grs behind a Nosler 90gr BT produced an avg velocity of 3,612. Tell me that won't kill a coyote at 50 yds + No way could I get those velocities with H4350 my rifles former favorite powder. Also 57.2 grs of Re#17 behind a 70gr Nosler BT produced 3,950 FPS . Long live Re#17.

    Just bought a pound of RL17 today. I've heard others talk about getting similar results! Also bought some Retumbo. 6mm-06AI

    10"twist rate. My rifle is a heavy walking predator/varmint rig . When this bbl is shot out I'll try something thinner.
