    Hey guys, usually like the varget or h4350 for 6.5cm. Just about out. Local place has 16# rl17 in stock anybody have any luck? He’s got it put aside for me. Grab it? Keep trying to get the unobtanium. I found a small thread in here about rl17 for 6.5 and looked like extremely temp sensitive.

    I've used it in lieu of N550 for the 136-144gr class of bullets. It's known for temp sensitivity, but I didn't log any excessive temp swings though my local temp range is quite narrow.

    40.5 of RL 17 under a 147 is money out of a heavy barrel 24". She gets pissy when its hot outside. So, buy a good amount and expect to have a load for summer and maybe one for winter depending on how exacting you want your velocities to be.
