    Yea, you'll need a lightening rod adjustment just about the time GG finds a girl [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    BTW, I find RL-22 a bit slower than 4831SC in the 270 and 338 Win.

    Re: Re-22 question

    7 saum? what bullet? How much R22?

    I'm still working on 8 pounds bought exclusively for a 25'06Ackley. Never saw the problem with dirty residue?

    I will say this. With R-22 & 100 gr. Ballistc Tip, yields highest velocity I have ever obtained in this chambering, by quite a bit.

    Maybe it doesn't burn clean at less than maximum charges?

    Good hunting. LB

    I worked up to 59.0 grs.(book max) of Re-22 with the 160 gr Accubond. Zilch for pressure signs. But velocity (2895 avg)is still 50-80 fps slower than what Nosler lists for this load with a 24" barrel. Since my barrel is a 27" I was hoping for around 3000 fps with this bullet. When the weather cools some I'll be working up some warmer loads and see what the rifle likes/tolerates.

    Re: Re-22 question

    I like R22 and use it in quite a few rounds but its one of those powders you want to by enough of at one time and of the same lot to shoot out a barrel.Have found lot to lot deviations to be more than other powders and enough to warrent redoing the load with every lot change.
    Ben my expience that it likes to be shot at max but temp and lot variations can make it tricky.
