Re: Tried RL-33 in three different chamberings today

Great info, thanks....

Just a note--I use Fed Mag primers in my 6x284 1-8 PacNor 27", shooting 117 DTACs @3240fps with 56.5gr of Ram Mag

Now that's not max for that mix in my rifle but it's extremely accurate in a wide temp range....

I do plan on trying RL33 myself.

Well my 105gr Berger hybrids will arrive tomorrow. Waiting for local gun shop to carry Re#33,don't want to pay that $25 haz mat fee.

I never wanted to pay the hazmat fee either. BUT the cost per lb for that 8 lb container was less than Sportsman's would charge plus tax. Imagine if you and your friends (or my friends) were to pool resources and buy several containers of powder at once? It would soundly beat local costs per lb.

AZShooter I wished you had a .264 Win Mag. I hope this new powder is temp stable, we as reloaders have a lot to chose from & it seems to be getting better. Nice Report buy the way Thanks.

I wonder how Re#33 will work in a 7mm wsm ? Especially with the 195gr that Berger says its trying to produce.

1100 Rem man,

I would certainly try RL-33 in a 264 with a 140 gr bullet. When you do let us know how it performed.

Iron Worker.

After trying RL-17 and 230 gr Target hybrids in my friend's 300 WSM and getting some amazing velocities and good accuracy in his tiny A-bolt with the Boss system I would think RL-33 is on the slow side for a WSM case. It is always worth a try. Be sure to use a long drop tube. <grin>

Note how the 230 gr is absolutely buried in the case. Vel 2720 fps
