Ran a powder charge ladder. Norma 217 vs Retumbo. Running low on retumbo so I thought I'd try looking for replacement. I've been running RL33 at 3410 fps. But I would like to get away from the very fast and heavy carbon build up. This was in my custom long range 264 win mag throated long. My hunting 264 is normal I run H1000 in it. Just thought this was interesting. Maybe it can help someone looking for a powder to replace Retumbo till it returns.

You'd think reloader 26 would be available regularly by now. Plenty of retumbo replacement s but theyre all out here.8133 7977 r26 h1000 retumbo and it looks like h4350 is on the wish list now where im at. I think these powder company's need some more competition thats eager. If a company focused just on rifle powder they'd make a mint.

I know there are replacements. But I saw the Norma powder on 2 different sights. So I gave it a try. It ran so close to retumbo that I was just letting people know.
