It might work. A lot would depend a lot on how far out the bullets could be seated; many 7x57's have the traditional long throat, and if the magazine's also long enough it would probably do pretty well with 160-175's.

58.5 RL26 / WW Brass / Fed 210M / 2,991 fps / 1.160" 3 shot group with two close and one out.
59.0 RL26 / WW Brass / Fed 210M / 3,016 fps / .530" 3 shot group.

Thanks Brad, that's promising. Filing for reference.

IF I can find some Rl 26, I'll do some testing this Winter/Spring depending IF/WHEN I find it.

Has anyone tried RL-26 and the 160 gr NP in the .270 Winchester?

Wow. Very interesting thread. Been considering another rifle in .270 Win. and this "tilted the scales" in favor, for sure.

I have a batch loaded up if it ever gets above zero and quits snowing I will get out and test them.

Same here!

It'll probably be April before I can get a chance to chronograph my loads but they do group well.

60 Grs RL26 under 160NP......020 off lands.

JB- forgive me if anyone has mentioned, not read every posts here, but it might appear 26 might show gain over 22 in a Swede with 140s. Any change you still have one and/or worked with it in the Swede?

Impressive speeds in a 22" - I dropped a CO Mulie near 300 yds, 150 PT went frontal just to the side of the throat, nearly exited, he want about 30-40 yds. 24" bbl - had 52/IMR4350, another half grain more was hot in this rifle.

2850 was MV, so no doubt H4831 would net another 100-150 potentially but R26 puts you in 7RM territory.

I was wondering if the Swede might benefit, possibly the SA 6.5 as well, like your 260.

I ran some 26 in my Swede with 120 Northforks and 130 Scirocco and Accubonds. The 130's were in the 2975 range and I never pushed them beyond that.

The same rifle does about 2750'ish with 7828SSC and 140 Accubonds. I plan to try a little 26 to see what happens.

65BR,

I haven't tried 26 in the 6.5x55 but probably will when I get some "spare time," which has been scarce lately!

I'm going to go all the way out to the end of the limb & make a real SWAG that it's highly likely that any thing that '22 works well in will likely benefit from '26. crazy

I thought that 26 was a temp-stable replacement for RL25? Or do I have that wrong?
I used to run RL22 in my M70 6.5X55 and it did well with 140gr partitions. I am curious to see what 26 will do also.

Seems like it fits in the case like 22 and has the speed of 25.. I knows that's a generality but it's what I've seen so far.

R26 does have something in common with.... 26 cal wink

MM - I think in smaller bore applications where you are looking for a slow powder, your thoughts mirror mine. Should be applications in 24-26 cal I would feel, 308 or so sized parent brass rounds and larger capacity.

Thanks JB and others, it seems to be worth a try.

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet or not, but Berger shows Reloader 26 with their 140 grain Classic Hunter. Max load 61.5 grains, velocity of 3195. That's with a 26 inch barrel.

I settled on 58.0 grains of RL-26,Fed 210 Match primer and 160 gr NP. From the 22" barrel it's averaging 2850 fps. Accuracy is under an inch.

With 59.0 grains it averaged 2910 fps,but accuracy was ok.

Thanks for that data, sounds like one heck of a load. I'll work some up after I shoot all my IMR 4831_ CCI 250_ 160 NP loads, probley should chrono my old loads in the new 25" bbl. 1st.

That's a fair bit faster than I'm running the 160 gr Partition using IMR 7977. Got to find some RL 26 soon..........

I will be ordering a browning x-bolt stalker long range with a 26 inch barrel (270 win) hopefully next week. So far I haven't been able to find any RL 26 locally, but am sure it will show up sooner rather than later. I am really looking forward to trying it out in a 26 inch tube.

Thanks everyone for posting all of this info on your experiences with RL 26. I was perfectly content, until I read this thread. smile

I got nothing other than to say I haven't been paying much attention to the newer powders, but the RL26/270 combo is interesting to say the least.

Thanks for posting.

There have been mountains of deer killed by 130gr .270 loads at 3000-3100 fps. Now we can run 150's at the same speed, sounds pretty good to me.

Shot some R26 yesterday in the .300 RUM, had good results though the chrono was fussy. Worth some more development.
