Re: RL-33 Load Data

I was playing with the RL33 this last weekend in my edge. to make it short, I stopped at 102 grns at 2950 fps with no real pressure signs. 2860 is about max with 93 grains of H1000, anymore and I loose brass very fast. This new powder really has my attention. I am going to go higher this weekend and see where it will take me safely. Love this stuff

    In my 6/284 cause its a relatively new bbl I found the AZ shooters loads were way to hot. I have no need for a drop tube. So be CAREFUL !

    Iron Worker,

    It is interesting how some rifles can digest different amounts of powder. At least you can say you got a performance boost with RL-33.

    There are so many variables, but I think most handloaders know to work up carefully when they see someone's data posted.

    Bassin93,

    Nice to see that RL-33 works in the edge!

    Has anyone tried rl33 in the 7mm rum? I have a custom 7mm rum with a 28" barrel. I have some rl33 coming. I am hoping it will do wonders in the rum with 160 accubonds

    It probably will but I would suspect RL-33 (like other slow burning powders) to work better with the heavier bullets i.e. 168, 175 180 & eventually the 195. It's well worth the try as it has the potential to boost your perfomance somewhat.
