    I'm working on a load using reloader 22 for my marlin xl7 270 win using 140 gr accubonds. I did some searching but didn't find what i was looking for. I'm looking for start and max load data on RL-22. Or if someone wants to share their secret load recipes. Thanks

    Shoot a P.M. to Royinidaho. He loads RL-22 In his 270. He'll have some great info for you. Just make sure NOT to try to match his load. Youll likely blow up.:D

    I have recieved an email from Roy and he does like the RL22. For what its worth I have had good groups using 140 acc. bonds with 58 grs. of H4831 SC. But I will admit I don't have RL22 and can't comment. Roy scared me a little when he said it is a little temperature sensitive. Good luck

    Thanks for the replys. I email Roy and he returned a PM message. I plan to try RL-22 out, and if don't work out I'll try H4831SC. Seems the 270 win like Rl22 and H4831SC. Is their a difference why people like to use h4831SC more than H4831? Same powder just one is short cut right? The reason why is I can get H4831, since the shop seems to carry this more than the short cut.

    The H4831 and H4831SC powders are identical except the short cut version is easier to run through a powder thrower. I have only used H1000 with 140 grain Hornady BTSP bullets. I may try some H4831sc in my 270W to see what kind of groups I can get.

    I have a little bit of H4831. A buddy of mine swears around 58gr of H4831SC is his most accurate load for his 270 win using 140 gr AB. I wonder if I can copy that with H4831? of coarse I would work up to it. I was trying to be different and use RL-22 since I have a lot. I've heard both are great powers.

    Dennis how fast were you cooking with tht mix of H1000 and 140 gr Hornady's. I shot alot of deer with 140 gr btsp. Still use the when I hunt woods.

    Well I made some loads, and check the 140 gr max col @ 2.876" with my Hornady comparator however my magazine will max gives me 2.820". So this gives me .056" off the lands. Boy these AB sure are long. Anyone using this bullet this far off the lands? or farther with great results?

    58.0 H4831 With those. I get 2950 with my sporter or 2830 with Bergers VDL's , both like that powder. No two rifles are the same though...
    I can't even get close to my lands...lol

    Re: 270 win 140 gr Accubonds RL22****Results

    Here is some pics of reloader 22. I need to re-shoot the 58.4 gr with five shots to confirm.

    [​IMG]

    This one is RL-17 52 gr / Rl-17 53 gr / and 58gr H4831.

    [​IMG]

    I shot all these at 100 meters. All were set at max magazine length 2.819" with hornady comparator or 3.361" col.

    Going to retry the 53gr. RL-17 and 58.4 gr Rl-22 and see what happens. I'll post results. As someone else the H4831 looks good too, minor bullet seat depth and it would good.
