Re: RL-33 Load Data

With my 700bdl lh in 300 rum with the 225 hornady hpbt I ran 90, 93, and 95 grains of rl33. Unfortunately the wind was up and gusty I couldn't get the chrono up.

90 rl33 produced a 1.080" 100 yard group with mild pressure
93 rl33 produced a 1.035" 100 yard group with slightly warmer pressure
95 rl33 produced a 0.675" 100 yard group with about max pressure

It seems that there is some difference between how early the berger and hornady reach max pressure. I know my pipe was maxed out as it was starting to get back flow near the primer indent, which is about max for my j-key lefty rem.

I also used the lefty 7mmstw with the 171 barnes and it topped at the start load of 82 grains accuracy wise ( 1.040" at 100 yd). I believe 84 and 86 grains were rather warm for the combo as the groups were progressively worse and the primers were flattening pretty good by 86 grains. I also had a bit of headstamp scraping on one of the 86 grain rounds.

Re: RL-33 Load Data

At my bench trying to dump 62.5grs of the Re#33 in my 6/284 Looks like there might be room for 63grs. Where can I buy a drop tube ?

Re: RL-33 Load Data

AZ shooter I just made a quick trip to desert to fire two of the 58gr loads. How far off the lands are your bullets seated ? My two brass cases I just fired have flattened primers and a slight ejector mark . But my bullet is just touching the lands( A loaded cartridge easily ejects but there are rifling marks on the bullet). I think I better seat them deeper .

Re: RL-33 Load Data

Here are a few more:

Forster Blue Ribbon Powder Funnel Long Drop Tube

Universal Powder Funnel Set | Powder Accessories | Powder Handling | Reloading Equipment | Reloading | 10ring.com

Kept searching and found this idea:

You can also make your own using a regular funnel, copper tubung, a flaring tool and a hot glue gun.

select the right size tubing that fits the ID of your funnel, you can trim the funnel to enlarge the hole if desired. Cut the tubing to desired length. Use the flaring tool to flare one end of the tube. Insert the tube, with flare on top, through the funnel, in the direction of flow. Put a little hot glue under the flare to seal it to the bottom of the funnel, Then flare the other end for your case mouth.

--------
Also bumped into several threads were guys used the vibration of their tumbler to shake the case. One guy said he used an old elec razor.

-------------

I have put my finger over a case mouth and gently tapped it on a hard surface to settle powder a bit deeper.

Well I've since seated them .025 deeper. Zero rifling marks on the bullet. Tomorrows load range will be from 59grs-63.5grs of Re#33 105 Hybrid.
