    I can't seem to find much data about this anywhere. Does anyone have any experience with the 204 and reloader 15 Do you need the BR-4 primers or will cci 400 be fine shooting in two savage rifles mod 12 and a mod 12 lrpv. Have berger 35 gr and hornady 40 gr vmax on hand I am leaning toward the v max much better bc Hornady brass and Rem brass would like to use rem. Mod 12 is my friends rifle 12 lrpv is mine would like to g etboth guns close to same load hopefully Planning P-Dog trip so being able to0 switch ammo would be very helpfull. thanks any help is greatly appreciated

    I've not tried the RL15 in my .204 but it likes 28.1 grains of 335.

    I have not used RL15 but have has some luck with RL10x.
