Have any of you guys got a chance to do some temp sensitive testing? I would love to get another 50-100 fps out of the EDGE but not with sensitive powder.

    I am getting 3,114FPS with 79.5gr of RL-33 in my 7mm Rem Mag with 168gr Nosler Accubond LR's.

    Couldn't be happier!

    That is pretty good. Does that load completely fill the case? I wonder how it would do with a 160 Partition?

    It's something like 105% compression load but the bullets seat with no problem

    I use a 4" drop tube

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?
    RL33 is listed in the latest versions of Quickload at least in the one I use.
