Re: New 6.5x55

Love that rifle! Glad you put it on a long action. Built and shot a lot of Swedes. I used RL22, H4831,H4350, and a few other powders but after Reloader 17 came out I gave it a try with 140g bullets. It performed very well in both modern chambers and a stock M96 born in 1910. If you try some, the load data put out by Alliant is very conservative. Preliminary test results with Reloader 17 -updated 11/17

The main thing I don't like about Reliant powders is the temp sensitivity. Have you done any testing with the same load in summer and winter?

Re: New 6.5x55

What's the latest on this rifle? Anyone have any data on RL-22?

Re: New 6.5x55

I ended up with 48.1 grains of H4831. I still have not done any more tests with RL22. Main reason is the temp sensitivity.
