Im torn between the Reloader 22 and Reloader 25.
RL 25 can be a little tricky to use. It only likes the top 1/2 of the loading chart or the neck won't properly seal in the chamber, creating a lot of carbon staining and gunk.
Also it's more sensitive to which primer you use.
RL 22 is MUCH easier to use working up loads.
and the accuracy is usually amazing.
So of the two, RL 22 gets my vote.
My 270 WSM loves 68 grains of H 1000, WLR, 150 AB. 2960 FPS 3 shots in a dime.
Also 70 grains of Ramshot MAGNUM, WLR, 150 AB. 3050 FPS. 3 shots in a quarter.
My 7mm RM was pretty happy with H 1000 also but not like the 270 WSM.
Good luck with the powder hunting.
I'm still trying to find the 'magic' powder for my 7mm RM.
My270 WSM has a fairly tight chamber.
Your mileage may differ.
