    Red face Anyone Looking for 1-lb of RL-17?

    Hey guys, I'm a relatively new reloader and pulled my first "doh!" moment at the store. Meant to grab RL-15 and accidentally ended up with RL-17.
    From what I'm reading, RL-17 doesn't seem overly popular for the 308 Win and I thought before I even tried working up some loads I'd just ask and see if anyone is interested in it. I paid $31.99 for it at Cabelas and was hoping it get something close to that (maybe $30, or trade for RL-15?). I'm in Anchorage.


    Shoot me a PM if anyone is interested, or any loads for the 308 with it that you know!


    Thanks,
    Steven

    Some are getting nice velocities using RL17 using heavy bullets.

    Thanks for the link, it was a good read! I might have to try some 200gr Partitions if I end up keeping the RL-17.
