    Has anyone tried the new LT-32 powder in a 6PPC or 6BR? If so how did it go.
    Thanks,
    Dave

    Dave,
    I think also Speedy G wrote up a article on it and it was in our daily bulletin.

    Check out the numerous threads about LT32 on Benchrest.com. It seems to be working out well.

    I have had some to play with, and to be perfectly honest, I find no difference in velocity, SD nor accuracy between it and my Australian H322.

    JRS,
    I have no LT-32 but found accuracy to be very good, about equal to N-133 if I played with neck tension (less tension with the H322) Also I have had good luck with
    X-Terminator and I have no big world values but it seems to be less temperamental to humidity changes then 133 is.

    Canadian 2015 comes in two kinds: one lot that is identical to LT-32 and the others that are considerably slower.

    I would expect LT-32 and the matching lot of 2015 to be too fast for most 6BR applications.

    In my 10 twist 6BR shooting midweight bullets, I've had good success with 8208XBR. It seems a tad faster than 4895 and meters very well in my ChargeMaster.

    I have LT-32 in hand, but haven't had an opportunity to shoot it in a 6PPC yet. I'm also considering getting a full 22PPC barrel.

    I thought it was the first lot of Canadian 2015 that they used as the baseline for LT-32. Lots of good reports for it in 6PPC and 22PPC. I'm eager to try it in my 30 Major, too.

    Now, as to 2015 in the 6BR, I have no idea. The slower lots might be great with some loads. I have 8 lb jugs of Varget, 4895 and 8208XBR laying around. So, it'll be a good, long while before I play around with anything.

    I'm with Greg's line of thought; the newer Canadian 2015 has come in several lots in the past year or so. Lot 1 is the one that matches up closest to LT32 and the other lots are slower. These Canadian lots not to be confused with older AA2015 not Canadian from years ago. I also have LT32 to try this spring. I might even mix some half and half with my newer Canadian 2015 Lot 2 to see what it will do. Don

    Good God don't say that the forum police will be here right away! I mentioned this not long ago in a thread about mixing same powders and I mentioned Speedy G mixed the very powders you mentioned for the same reasons and you should have seen all the guy's jump on me! I even went to this sites daily articles and copied and pasted straight from speedy's report but I was still wrong no one in the history of man ever did this and if they did they were STUPID!!! I am not sure but I think it even got removed from the thread,....be vary careful what you say.

    A little slow 2015Br would be very close to Reloader 10x, which is perfect for 6br shortline I hear.
