Well fellas, I went ahead and worked up a few loads with the Ramshot LRT.
26” bbl, 1:8 twist, Lapua brass, CCI large rifle primers, 140g Berger VLD, 3.065 COAL.

I’m fairly happy with the results.

Matches what I've found with LRT.....fuller cased = best sd. It also burns cleaner near the max. Even at 90 degrees it's stayed consistent. I think it's a good choice especially since it'll be softer on the throat.

I'm looking at his excel [email protected] grains the es sucks. As it gets fuller it gets way better.

Im using it in a 26 snosler. I'm over recomended max and still no pressure with a 156 grain bullet. I could went higher but it was 90+ degrees out all summer and I wanted to save my barrel life so I went with first Good es load since every load was shooting good.

That is fast. I may need to look at N570 or LRT if I can find it.

RL23 is a little over 100 FPS slower. Only about another 100 yards down range and an animal probably wouldn't know the difference but who reloads to shoot marginal speeds 🤔.

Are you compressed at all?
