    Default Rl 33

    I have a 30-378 that I would like to try with RL 33 but am unable to find any guidelines on the internet for starting loads. I called Alliant but they had no suggestions? Has anyone had experience with this powder/caliber? Thanks in advance.

    Fill to the top of the case and level off with a blade. JK. I would like to find some 33 to try in my 338Norma. It's like finding hens teeth.

    Last week Boondock's in Eagle River had several pounds of hen's teeth on the shelf .... currently? Might be worth a call. Good Luck.

    Thanks for the headsup. As far as recipes go have you tried snipershide. I think the people who actually came up with it are on there. Someone on there should know.

    I'll let you know how it works in the .300 RUM and .338 A2, but it will take about six weeks. It's on the way.

    I tried RL 33 in my 338-378 yesterday with 300 gr SMKs. I started at 110 gr and worked my way up 1 gr at a time to 118.0 gr. I started with 2766 at 110.0 gr with 116.0 gr I hit 3006 and 2961 and no pressure signs, 117.0 gave me 3013 and 2997. Ended up with 118.0 and hit 3047 and 3027. If can find a load that gives me accuracy and a good es at somewhere around 3000 fps without being too temperature sensitive I'll be happy.
