Received my 2# of Reloader 33 on 13 June 2013 after a long wait.

Now the fun begins with the 338 Lapua

Re: reloader 33 in 338 lapua

Just received my RL-33 this morning. I'm shooting Berger 300gr OTM with Fed 215 primers. I had asked for Alliants reloading guide but unfortunately they did not send it with my powder so ill try there website again to find a good starting point. Ill keep everyone posted on my load development.

Keep us posted on your velocities and accuracy. I am shooting the same bullets as you are but using H1000 and CCI primers.

Re: reloader 33 in 338 lapua

I just picked up 6 pounds of rl33, did any of you have any good results with it? Good accuracy? Velocity? Temp stable? I ran out of my go to powder h1000. Hoping rl33 can fill the shoes. I get good accuracy with rl25 but not good temp stability. Also does anyone know if the bearing surface is close between 250 smk and hornady250 bthp. The load data between sierra and hornady is way different.like 10 grains of h1000 different. I always work up but I don't want to waste components and time. My accuracy load for 250 Mk is 99 ,under sierra max but way over hornady max. I would have just stayed with sierra's but as with everything else i can't find any, did find some hornady 250's . Just got my first batch of berger 300 to try with rl33 if you can point me in the right direction, thanks.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

I can't find it offhand, but I recall reading a thread started by Kirby Allen (fiftydriver) testing drops in RL33 at various temperatures with consistent results. If I find it I'll post a link (or someone pick up my slack)
