Thread: Rel 22 alternative

  1. #1

    Rel 22 alternative

    I have been using Rel 22 for .243 (using 100g bullets) and 6.5 55mm (using 140g bullets) and getting good speeds and great accuracy I am now down to my last few grains and ringing round it doesn't look like there will be any arriving UK any time soon. So any other suggestions for loads ideally using any of the following which I have plenty of:

    Vit N160 and N165
    Hodg 4350
    IMR 4831

    Thanks

    I use H4350, N160 and N165. I just follow the Hornady Manual. Regards JCS

    Thanks for that JCS Any of them you find particularly good re burn rate/speed accuracy. Both rifles are 20 inch barrels

    I can't comment on the questions you ask re your bullets in your rifles. I suggest you trial a couple of powders and see how things stack up v RL22, but to be honest I rely on the Hornady manual. As long as my rounds have an adequate velocity and good accuracy, I crack on and go shoot them.
