Anybody out there using this powder, and happy with it? Always used IMR 4350 and H4831SC before, I am getting best groups since I switched to Reloader 22.

I have used it in a 6.5x55 Swedish Mauser with great results, very accurate and consistant, sorry I can not help with the 7 mag info.

Hello. I've gotten superb results with Re22 in .338 and .39-06 using 210 and 180 gr bullets, respectively. Best.

Put me down as a fan. I've used it in my .270 Winchester for heavier bullets with great results.

I tried it in my 7 mag but ended up going with Rl-19. I got great groups with the 22 but I got the same groups and a little better velocity from the 19. I use the 22 exclusively in my 25-06 and 115gr Partitions. It gives the best velocity of all the powders I tried with groups in the 3/4-1" range.

I agree it does pretty well, especially with 160-175 gr bullets. The only powder I use more is H-1000 with Sierra gamekings. A top load gives 1/2-1 min.

It's about the only powder I use in the 7mmMag. Excellent choice.
