Bet you could swap that RL-26 for RL-16, if you put the word out...

I got some early R-26, a couple of pounds to try. It is definitely slower than the jugs I bought a couple years later. I was using loads that were over 3% beyond Alliant's data before I got near their speeds. The lot number of the R-26 jugs seems right on with the data.

My R-16 experience is the opposite. I bought a couple pounds right after it came out, and it's burn rate is MUCH faster than the data. I can't even get beyond Alliant's starting loads, and those even look spicy. Velocity was nowhere near what Alliant claimed. I should try another lot number and see how it is.

I'll wait until it's out a few years before I buy the next new powder.

Bought a 6.5 CM because I got a great deal on it. Browning X-bolt. 3 1/2 inch group at 400 yards with factory Federal Premium 135 gr Berger.
My friends rip me for the most part.
“ you hear about the two gay guys that said let’s go in and have sex. We will worry about the Creedmoor’s tomorrow.”
One friend named it the “storyteller”. He says I will come back to camp about noon and tell about one that I wounded that got away.

I have two other friends that have them and love them. I was lucky enough to draw my antelope tag here in Oregon this year and I’m going to take the 6.5!
