Re: Re#25 and the 270WSM

I think its a bit slow, dont you currently use RL-22? For some reason I thought Id seen a post of yours with that or RL-19. I love 62 gr of RL-19,and grouped sub moa all the way to 64 gr, sut 62 realy shined brightest. Ive hered of guys using RL-17, but not RL-22. Are you shootin 140's or 150's? I'd guess the heavier the bullet the better RL-22 would work in the 270wsm, but I just dunno.

Re: Re#25 and the 270WSM

I was mostly using Mag Pro. Lately its been so difficult getting powder. Local gun shop had a couple cans of Re#25.Upon reading a post on Reloadersnest.com that a shooter really liked the stuff. So I thought I'd give it a try. So tomorrow I'll trying 69 and 70grs behind a Sierra GK 140 gr.Also try a stiff load of IMR 7828 (65.1 grs) behind same bullet.My rifle has a muzzle brake on it. You might be able to hear it up there in Oregon. If these Loads don't produce MOA at 100 yds. I'm gonna seriously consider putting out $500 bucks for a custom bbl installation.

Ya Ive hered mixed results with magpro. Love/Hate. just wonderin if you read the post on seating depth by.....Eaglet I think. he was using the same loads on like three different seating depths and said you couldnt even tell the groups came from the same rifle! He had some meathod like or same as Berger, for adjusting seating depth for accuracy. Apparently it works well. I need to read it again.
But on the other hand, a new pipe is always a cool backup plan! Good luck, and post your results so I can learn something new with out having to try it myself

Re: Re#25 and the 270WSM

Today's brief range report Tried 4 powder's with 140 gr Bullets.( Sierra GK and Berger VLD) Re# 22 & 25 IMR 7828 Mag pro. Amazing how one load will produce high velocity in one rifle and same load in another over 200 FPS slower. That happened today with Re#22 and Imr 7828 . Both were under MOA in accuracy but low velocity.. Then tried max load and a grain above max load with Re#25 Producing 3,125 with 3/4 MOA at 100 yds. Then max load of Mag pro and it produced a whopping 3,350 and 1 1/2 MOA at 100 yds. All other powders show increase potential. Re#25 was the winner today.

Re: Re#25 and the 270WSM

My 270WSM has a Lawton barrel and I tried alot of different powders. I got real good velocity with Mag-Pro and H-1000, R-22 was OK. I finally setttled on R-17 and soon as the weather gets better going to load some for the 300WSM see how that does.

So is your barrel cut rifled ? How long ? Re#17 shines with 110 V-max,yesterday out of a 24"bbl I was pushing 110 V-maxs with 67grs of Re#17 3,540 average. I'm gonna experiment with Re#25 some more. Mag pro produced inconsistent accuracy and velocity spikes.
