Re: Testing RL 22

Damn I might have to try some on top of a 150g bullet out of my .270. I use to use RL22 and 19, I got excellent groups with them, but from everyone on here saying how temp sensitive they were, I switched to hodgon powders. Still getting good groups, but hopefully got away from the temp consistency problem. That is pretty interesting though that over 1/2 used RL powders. I will be trying it in my .270 with 150g sbt's now for sure!!!

Re: Testing RL 22

Because of my seasonal work load, most of my range work is done in the summer.
Temps run over 100F most days I'm at the range.
This works well since I hunt California 'A' zone under the same conditions.
I've hunted Zone D-7 below freezing.
Cronograph readings with an 80 degree difference has been about 25fps.
That's not a big deal.
On the other hand if you work up your load while it's cold & shoot when it's hot you could have a problem.
RL22 is a double base powder that has a limited tolerence for top end pressure.
Once you hit the top of it's designed pressure curve problems can develope quickly regardless of time of year or temperture.
