Few people have told me to try it, but clearly its all gone. What am I missing? Is it that good?
Since it's inception, it is known to bring extreme velocities in cases where other powders flat hit the wall.
There are also claims of extreme accuracy with it at accelerated speeds. This would be on you to test.
I'll keep my opinion to myself.
Last year it was h4350 that was virtually impossible to find.
This year its RL26.
You may be a 26 fanboy. Fanboys cannot think for themselves. I get 26 free and you fanboys sponsor me.
Actually only use it in my 6five.
Couple other calibers didnt prefer as well as
Please explain how you get 26 for free as I only need about 5# a year.
Hey fanboy, you got to keep an eye on Milo, maybe follow him. I found some 26 10 minutes ago, maybe I'll order it..Bc'z = Fanboy,,like it.
Rl26 and a 6five a match made in heaven!
Recoil isn't as sharp, its accurate, consistent velocities.
I've been thinking about giving rl23 a shot so to speak, as I read more on it.
I hope it works in my new 25-284 I got 6 lbs. yesterday!
Is any in stock anywhere? I stopped at brunos jason said maybe by springtime
Grafs,,but you better get it before I do, going to place an order later today.
Grafs says out of stock
I feel like we both got played!
I checked also.
Guess I'm going to savor the 1 1/2# I have and wait it out.
Bc'z, you know I don't play, they had it a hour ago when I first looked now they don't. I'll check a few other places.
Had real good luck (groups & velocity) with R-26 in my 284 however, it got a little erratic when temps hit the mid 80’s. Haven’t tried R-23 yet but heard good reports on it.
Been using RL26 for quite some time, I've found it to be a very universal powder in a variety of cases giving top velocities as well as being on par for accuracy with any of the powders it replaced. I know quite a few different shooters that have also replaced their other powders with RL26 and are having great success. too. The new Viht N565 looks to be very similar powder to RL26 but it too, is nearly impossible to get.
What types of velocity difference are you seeing from H4350? Its it slower buring? Work best on larger bullets ? I'm shooting 6mm creedmoore. The case capacity is larger than I want for what i'm shooting. I would prefer a little bit larger colonel that is slower burning
I really like Re 26, but like everything that is the newest and greatest, it is hard to find. I ordered a big jug of it from Powder Valley, when they had it. I could see the writing on the wall. H4350 is available now, though!
I shoot H4350 and RL17, both at 40 Grns and I get 50~75 fps less from H4350 than the RL17. Both very accurate.
