What is RL 17 good for?

What is RL 17 good for?

Reloader 17’s unique penetrating burn-rate regulator smooths out the pressure curve, allowing RL17 to maintain high energy for a longer period of time. Since pressure drops off more slowly, you can achieve more velocity for a given peak pressure. The second reason RL17 offers so much added velocity is load density.

RL-17 should work good for the 30-06 with 165 -200 gr bullets and the . 270.

You can see Hodgdon H4350 had the least variance in muzzle velocity, with just 25 fps over the 115° swing in temperature! That is very, very low. Hodgdon Varget was the second least temperature sensitive powder in this test, with 46 fps of variance in muzzle velocity between temperatures of 25° F and 140° F.

Can reloader 17 be used with a 308?

Has anyone tried Reloader 17 in a .308 to see if it has any velocity gains or is it a little too slow burning for the cartridge. I read where it was tried with the 155gr SMK’s with less than stellar results, but they said that it would probably work well with the 168gr and heavier bullets. Let us know if you try it though…

What is the best caliber bullet for a rl-17?

Good luck! From what i’ve seen, the heavy for caliber bullets like the 208 A-Max, 210 Berger etc perform VERY well in the .308 case with RL-17. There are a handful of very good articles on SnipersHide encompassing that info, it’s work a look.
