Thread: RL15 one size fits all?

  1. #1

    RL15 one size fits all?


    Having the same old story of varget drying up, trying to source a powder to load several calibers and after much searching came across RL15 , and from what the load data informs me it appears to cover all bases,for the calibers I reload, anyone out there use RL15 at all?

    in the following calibers, 223/243/260/308/30-30/303.

    cheers Steve

    Used RL 15 in the 260 - just the max loads from the Nosler Book 6/website, same for a 7-08 that I used to have..... the results matched the Nosler data within 5fps, using Nosler Custom Brass or Lapua brass. I am still using it after 10 years and have no reason to change unless the supply dries up.

    RL 15 for 243 pushing 58gr vmax and 150gr Sst in a 30-06. Ramshot hunter will also do the job.

    I thought Varget was readily available last time I saw at least 5x tubs in two different places. Have you tried reloading solutions if your in Oxford?

    n140 should just about do you , cheap, usually easily available

    I asked for RL15 at the Shooting Show and was told that RS60 was the same, but according to charts, I should have been sold RS50, which also has the same burn rate as N140. The charts show RS60 as being the same burn rate as RL17 and N550.

    RL 15 for .243, use it as an alternative to n140
