    I was wondering if anyone has any experience with ramshot hunter powder?
    I am down to the scraps of my powder supply and thought I would try this in my 6.5 creedmoore. My big concern is how tempture sensitive is it?

    Ramshot has been decent powder for me, but I don't use Hunter at present. Some say it's not bad as far as temp. sensitivity. I simply don't care about that in a powder for the most part as the other factors like air density and barrel stiffness in cold weather will make you change your drops anyway.

    Well said lefty... some folks get WAY too wrapped up in temp sensitivity... How many dozens of accuracy records does the RL line hold? :D

    I use or have used Magnum, X-Terminator, Big Game, TAC & Silhouette.

    I'm having great luck with Ramshot, giv'er a go & see for yourself.

    I'm using it in my 22-250 with 53gr vmax. I never saw a difference in the middle of winter this year when I went to confirm things before going after the mutts:)

    We have been using it with great success in the 260 Rem. I am sure that it would work great in the 6.5 creedmor as well.

    I have used diffrant Ram Shot powders in sevral calibers. All have worked with no problems. The only one I currently useing hunter is in a 270wsm. Hunter did not work in my 308 but tac behind a 155 a max is very good.
