Re: Reloader 33

The military landed a big contract for RL 33 for their lapua

Alliant has load data for the Laupa on their website.

I currently use Retumbo in my Lapua.

I had the 185 and 265 LRX barnes shooting better than that....
Also tried 250 Gr SMK....

I am WIDE open to any advice you might have... I was going to try Retumbo again but cant find the stuff... RL 33 is plentiful so that is why I was asking!!!

Thanks,

Mario
Try backing it off the lands a bit more. .005, .010 and .015 and see if that doesn't dial any in for you. I would take the most accurate of the ones you have tried and try those different seating depths.

You are corerect sir! The guns that I have shot Berger bullets in have never been touching or jammed and they have definitely shot well.

My 338 Lapua is now done being built and will be in my hands soon! I will be loading the 300 gr Bergers with H1000 and the bullets will be back off the lands for sure.

Re: Reloader 33

OK... well I will try that next week.. I will back them off the lands. ALso, maybe back down the powder... Not sure what the Max load is... I didn't have any pressure signs so I think I am ok.... It is not listed in my book or on Hodgon's website so I will keep trying and work it... I do not want to go with more powder as I am afraid that backing it off the lands will increase pressure. Anyone know the max load with H-1000 and 300 gr bergers?

Re: Reloader 33

Well, I went and shook a few places up today with the same results...zilch !

most popular answer : never heard of Reloder 33 !!!

Chimo Guns in Wasilla never heard of the crap and want $32 per lb of RL25, IMR7828 and everything else with not much to choose from..

Mat-Su Tactical boys have some on order but not happening till who knows when.....
powder is at $28 per 1 lb can... had plenty of RL25 .....
guy tells me he can get Norma 500 Jeffery brass but it will take 4 weeks, the supplier has it in stock but too busy filling orders and has to put my order on a wait list... $139.99 for a box of 25 pcs. ,,,, ouch !!

3 Bears never heard of RL33 and their supplier doesn't have it listed.....
although I did score 3 1lb cans of IMR7828 ssc for $23.79 each, all in the same Lot, yesss !!

called the camera hams at Wild West Guns and they have no clue as to when either ....

the reason I want RL 33 is it will be THE powder for my 6.5 wildcat.... I can feel it, I need to fill up a case with a water capacity of 105 gr
