    I've been stingy about loading with RL26 for about two years now.
    I was beginning to think that my rifle barrels that run on RL26 would last forever.

    You should have seen what they did to powder prices when we had a HUGE storage during the Obummer administration.
    I've been guilty of calling Lester Bruno a crook. I was just mad.

    It happens. It’s frustrating when powders become scarce or someone mentions a possible shortage and the knee jerk reaction is to buy up as much as one can afford to prevent running out of the powder that your gun likes. I had just gotten my 338 and worked up a load with 26 and boom, it’s gone. Lol. Got lucky and the local gun store had 8 1#ers. Guess the next scare is H1000 and Retumbo?

    I was going to order until I saw the Hazmat and shipping charges. Maybe one of our local stores was right when they told me they would have RE 26 very soon. I'll wait I still have some.

    So I ordered a jug of RL33 and a jug of RL26. My total for everything (shipping and hazmat)was $429.55.

    $429.55÷16= $26.84 a pound delivered to my door. Thats not really that bad considering Cabelas wants $27.99 a pound before anything is added.

    I didn’t think it was that pricey so I ordered the exact same thing, found out only one gun likes 8133 so back to RL26 and 33.

    I’ve got a 28 built on a 700 action, Lilja barrel that likes it behind 195’s. 1/2 moa and pretty decent ES and SD. Don’t have numbers off top of my head (I’m at work). My 338 LM with 300 Berger’s didn’t seem to like it. 3 touching and 2 flyers....1 1/2” away flyers. Gave up on it and went back to RL 33. Might give it a whirl in a 300 RUM

    My 300RUM, 6.5 wsm, 300wm and my 270wby did not like it.
    My 28 Nosler runs on RL33.
