Re: Reloader 33 (Alliant) for "lesser" calibers [than 338]?
I am kind of new to the .264WM. So far, I have been using Retumbo with good results in terms of accuracy and velocity. I also hunted with light loads using RL22 because I was hunting at shorter ranges in the woods and was trying to minimize meat damage. That all turned out to be a moot point since the only thing I say was a crybaby doe (or maybe a little button buck, couldn't tell for sure).
I have ordered some RL33 to try out, but I am sorry to say that I won't have a chance to test it until April or May because I travel so much. My plan is to use 140g Berger Hunting VLD's and 140g Hornady AMAX's. I may also get my hands on some 160g Matrix VLD's to see what kind of velocity I am able to get from those. I don't have the twist to stabilize them, but if the velocity looks good I may have my 6.5-284 re-chambered to .264WM. It has the right twist to shoot the 160's.
When I do have the chance to test it, I promise to share my results.
