Varget is excellent with the 124 Hammer. In fact, that’s what Steve Davis recommend, but I couldn’t get my hands on Varget at that point in time and RL16 was available (which I why I used it).Varget worked best in my rifle with the 124 HH. Lapua small rifle primer brass with Fed 205M. .020 off the lands. 39.8 gr was at 2,995 fps. As always, work your way up.
Haven’t tried it with lighter bullets, but I believe it’s better for the 140’s and above.Have you tried RL26 in your Creed with lighter bullets like the 124HH or is it really better suited for the heavies.
I'm trying to get some velocity out of my new 124gr HH from a 20" 6.5 Creedmoor. Since this bullet is about the same length as my 140gr Berger's I'm running into a case capacity issue. Running RL-16 and cant get anymore shoved into the case. Never used a bullet this light and wondering if anyone has some good powder recommendations for these 124gr HH that return some good velocities. Thanks for the help.
