One thing i have noted though with Reloder 17 is that it hides pressure signs. Until you are WAY past high pressure.
But if you use current published data in calibers it likes it is still pretty dang good. Creedmores, .260s and medium 6 mms ( 6XC,6 Creedmore , 6x47L)really like it.
Just my humble opinion............

Yep, that smooth pressure curve can be a double edged sword.

Great performance without pressure signs.

Is it a stealth powder that could be off the charts when pressure signs do show up?

Some discussion, no real consensus on temp sensitivity, different answers/different applications.

All said, I like RL-17. Ya just gotta understand it.

I'd swap it in a heartbeat but for the shipping problem.

Different strokes.

Impressive groups. Looks like you've got the right recipe.👍

My Ruger #1A is particularly fond of 165 Hornady SP's (flat base), seated .03" short of the lands, with 58 gr. of H4350 stuffed into Rem. brass & sparked by Fed. 210 match primers. Velocity from the 22" barrel averages 2838 fps. and (3-shot) groups average about 1" at 100 m. (sometimes a bit more - sometimes a bit less - depending on my 70 yr. old diabetic eyes). I've used this rifle/load combo for years and have killed a few truck loads of white tails and muleys with it.

Worked up a load for my Kimber Montana, 55 grains of Varget with 125 gr Nosler Accubond, 3050 fps Indiana first deer season with larger caliber rifles this combo worked great.

At 300 yards today, about 53 degrees F. Prone, over the pack:



53 grains of H4350, R-P brass, CCI large rifle primers.

Three shots on the 300 yard gong, spread of about 2.5" and the 200 gr Partitions were averaging 2612 fps. That first round hit, the gong rang, and I got a big ol' grin on my face. I wish I'd explored 200 gr bullets for the .30-06 long ago. My rifle & ammo did well last season with 165 grain Ballistic Tips at 2900 fps, but I think this load would have been even better, particularly on the bear and elk.

JB/Mule Deer mentioned that this bullet penetrated well and worked great on a wide variety of big game, but I never anticipated such accuracy!

Regards, Guy

Great shooting Guy and beautiful rifle there. I too have been playing around with the 200gr. partition. I was low on H4350 since it hasn't been around here in a few years, so I went back to my go to powder (IMR4350). Here's how my old 1917 does with that excellent 200gr partition, sans the buck and bull I also shot with this set-up:


My pre 64 model 70 fwt also loves this load...
