Interesting VV N570 is coarser. Never tried any VV powders.... Would love to hear how that 30-378 would perform with RL-33. What bullet would you try?

    N-570 is a lot like IMR7828 prior to the short cut version.

    I'd have to try something besides a VLD most likely. It pushes them too hard. It will shoot 150gr Nosler BT's over 4000fps. I think it was pushing 210's over 3400fps last time I tried.

    You could try the 230 gr target hybrid. Thicker jacket of bearing surface than the hunting VLD plus heavier weight will slow it down. Imagine a .380 G7 BC screaming from your rifle. The OTM 230 gr hybrid did a great job last year with Broz and his son. From what I have read the taarget hybrid and OTM 230 gr bullets are very similarly constructed.
