Re: Reloader 33 (Alliant) for "lesser" calibers [than 338]?

I would be glad to get 3200 fps out of a 170-180 grain pill from my new 7rum (I've only pushed to 3500 fps with 140's and 3100 fps with 175's in my old rifle), but then I've only been able to get 2800-2900 from a 7rem with 175's and retumbo in a 26" bbl..

Re: Reloader 33 (Alliant) for "lesser" calibers [than 338]?

I have been wondering if RL33 would offer any advantages over Retumbo in a .264 Winchester Magnum. Haven't seen any for sale yet, so haven't had the chance to try it. Also haven't seen anything posted by anyone else about trying this powder in .264WM. Though Retumbo and H1000 are known to work well in 6.5-284, I am thinking RL-33 would be too slow for that cartridge. Thoughts anyone?

I am planning to buy the latest version of Quickload soon. Does anyone know if RL33 has been incorporated in QL yet?

I'm guessing 33 would do very well in the 264 WM with 140 and 160 bullets.
and I think you're right that it would be too slow for the 6.5-284.

I think the best way to get some is to order it. Keep watching the online suppliers for inventory.

I am interested in trying it. Will have to keep an eye out for it online. Thanks for the heads up. When I do finally get my hands on some, I will try it out and report back.

If it does offer a significant gain in .264WM, I may have my 6.5-284 converted to .264WM and try it with 160's (my current .264 doesn't have enough twist and won't until it's time to change the factory barrel).
