    Does anyone know where I can find some Vit 570..
    I have a 338 edge coming with very little time to load before Elk season.
    I'll buy a lot or a little if there is any to be had...
    thanks

    Your looking for that mythical, magical VV N570 powder, good luck!!!

    Might want to give RL33 a try. From what I am seeing, it will do pretty much anything N570 will do and will do it in a powder you can actually find and afford.

    Some say its very sensitive to temp changes, I have not seen that in my 7mm AM and 338 Allen Xpress. Tested them in 40 degree temps, 60 degree temps and 75 degree temps and average velocity range was only 30 fps from very low end to top end, plenty consistant in my opinion over a 35 degree temp swing.

    Want to do more testing but so far it looks pretty good, plus you can actually gets your hands on it from time to time and do not need to spend $50 per lb of powder. Just saying. Might be an option to consider for the time being.
