    66 grs you not getting any pressure signs?
    noslers web site says 63.5 gr max
    what are your groups like and how far are you shooting it?
    THis will be used on a med range gun max around 600 yards
    thanks retiredcpo

    No pressure signs at all. The nosler book is usually a little low and it is different from gun to gun. But the gun is a rough old winchester super shadow. it is my beat around truck gun. But it shoots great about a half inch at 100 yards 5 shot group. Very fun reliable gun though. I would not hesitate to use it for long range if I had it in a nicer rifle. I have had good luck with the Reloader 19 though

    RL-19 (61-64 GR) with 140 Nosler Accubonds showed sub moa out of my Win 270wsm. At 100yds, 62gr of RL-19 shined best with my first 3 shots at .310 inch and with 64gr a .8?? with all 5 rounds was my largest group.
    I started to flatten primers ever so slightly with 63 and 64 gr. Not ''pancaked'', but flat. *just a side note: Hornady's book maxes out before Noslers on this cartrige, so I was a bit hesitant on loading hotter. Just take your time and work up to max and wach for pressure signs and youll be ok.
    Ill probably stick with the RL-19/140 Accubond combo for this rifle. Im very pleased with the results. It seems to want to shoot well at any range I attempt. So practice is alot more fun.

    I was shooting the 140 gr Sierra Game King and Berger VLD. Using Mag Pro IMR7828 Re#22 and Re#25. With Magpro 73.5 produced an average 3325 FPS but fair accuracy. 70grs of Re#25 produced average 3125 and under MOA with room for powder increase .

    WW brass, Fed GM210M primers, 140 Accubond, H1000 powder.
    I worked my way up using the Hodgdon website numbers for this powder in the 270WSM. At 70 grains the primers were flattening a little, so I'm calling 69 grains the max load for MY RIFLE, YOUR RIFLE WILL PROBABLY BE DIFFERENT.
    This was the first powder I tried in my RBros rifle, easiest load development I've ever done.
