I don't think RL33 is shipping yet. Something's up with all the ATK brands.

RL-33 is available. I got mine in early Oct. from Powder Valley Powder Valley, Inc.
The 8 lbs came in a monsterous sized container which could have held at least 12 lbs. The surprising part is that even with the haz mat it was cheaper than buying locally.

FYI none of our local stores carry it yet....

I see that there are recipies online already but it's not listed in Alliant's powders. I looked this weekend and didn't see it anywhere but I'm definetly going to try it when I can get some.

Re: reloader 33 in 338 lapua

RL-33 is listed in Alliant's load data. You will have to do some digging to see suggested usage. They have said they are still working with it and various cartridges. The load data will sneak into their pages I suppose.

I was looking at 7 STW load data and found it there.

Alliant's method of listing the powders that should be used for a particular cartridge is tedious. They should take a lesson from Hodgdon's site where all powders are shown on one page with a ranking of bullet weights. It also wouldn't hurt to show starting loads AND maximum loads for each combination.

I just e-mailed Alliant and said the same thing as above. Maybe if enough of us contacted them they would revamp their load data pages.

Re: reloader 33 in 338 lapua

The Alliant site is ok. I will admit that the Hodgdon works better when looking for loads. It frustrates me a little that the products are not highlighted as fast as they are announced. Being a marketing manager myself I had all new products highlighted with press releases via the web within 2 hours. Not slamming ATKs marketing as they are probably pulled in 50 directions ar any given time but the marketing does need a little help.

Re: reloader 33 in 338 lapua

I am using retumbo now in my 338 lapua until Reloader 33 comes to Fairbanks Alaska
I have some of the new 300 gr Bergers elite hunting bullets and a pile of Hornady brass with Fed 215M primers.

Really would like some RL 33 to try!
