Alliant Reloader 19

What are your favorite uses and bullets for this powder?

My 260 Rem likes 46 grains of reloader 19 topped with Hornady 129 grain Interlocks! I just worked up some test loads for my 7mm mag using Reloader 19 and 160 grain Accubonds but haven't shot them yet.

I use Reloder 19 in 300 WSM with Hornady 165 gr Interbonds, works extremely well on hogs, deer and coyotes.

I have tried RL-19 in several calibers from my 243 up through my 7mm RM. THe better loads were in the 26-06 up. It just seemed a bit slow for the smaller ones.

That said, I used it for my 162gr loads in my 7mm RM and it was awesome. It also worked very well in the .280 I just gave my nephew for Chirstmas with the 139gr Hornady SPBT.

As a favorite, well I can't say I actually have one, except for RL-22 in my 25-06 using the 110gr Acubond or the 115gr Partition. That is simply the best overall powder for that rifle.

Work up slow with RL-19 in the 7mm RM and you will find it does a great job with the heavier bullets. If your getting the velocity but not the accurasy adjust your seating depth a bit, and it should come right in. I know several folks who ause it and they all are getting good velocity with excellent groups out to 300yds.

For the 160 grain Accubond in the 7mm Rem mag, I recommend 65.0 grains of Reloader 22 rather than using Reloader 19 which I prefer for the 338. As usual start a few grains lighter and work up as this is considered a max load.

My current .30-06 hunting load uses 61.0 grains of RL19 and a 150 grain Hornady SST bullet. WLR primer. This gives me 2907 fps from my Savage 110, with accuracy under 1 inch at 100 yards. This load has taken a couple of deer and acquitted itself very well.

For the .25-06, and most overbore cartridges, I use RL22, which I've found works best in cartridges with big cases relative to bore size.

I've used it for 270 win w/130 grainers and 25-06 rem w/100,110 and 120 grain. I like alliant powders, a lot of people say they aren't temp stable, or at least not as temp stable as the Hodgdon extreme powder line, which may be true...I don't know. But either way I've never had problems with the loads I've made with it....meters well too

Hmmm ... let's see; Reloader 19 in .284 Winchester Model 70, .280 Remington-Remington 7400, and 7x57 Mauser-Spanish model 1893 with 145 grn, 150 grn & 160 grn bullets, respectively. All of these loads provide great accuracy in my guns, 3/4", 7/8" and 2" (iron sights mauser) @ 100 yards. These are all "middle of the road" loads. I also like Reloader 15 for my 8x57 mauser and Reloader 7 for my 375 Winchester.
good powders

I picked up a lb today for 24.00 at my lgs, and I got some 168 grain bullets in mind for my 30-06, and maybe something different in my 7mm mag.

.270 Win
140 gr Nosler Partition
New Win Brass
WLR Primer
3.280" OAL
55.0 gr RL-19
(This is a MAX load, in the Nosler manual. Work up from 51.0 gr.)

It's a good one.

Nathan is that a .30-06 or .300 win mag?
Frankenmauser, is this your "go to" deer and antelope loading? I need to move up to heavier bullets and test to see if my rifle likes them as well as the 130 grain pills. Thanks for your input, I will try it for sure.

Yea - That's my "universal" Elk and Antelope load. I'd use it for Deer, too, if I ever hunted them.

It took me about 2 years to finalize that load. I spent quite a bit of time testing several powders side-by-side, in hot and cold temperatures, to see which of the powders was the least temperature-sensitive, while still providing decent accuracy. RL-19 blew everything else away.

In my rifle (22" bbl), that load clocks 2,790 fps. ...a far cry from Nosler's test barrel's 3,003 fps. (But pretty close to Hornady's testing, at a hair over 2,800 fps for their 140 SST.)

Thanks again Frankenmauser, 150 grain .277 pill leaving the barrel at 2,790 is plenty fast enough for my intentions. I will start testing this loading as soon as I pick up some bullets.
There is a great read in the Handloader mag, just about the .270 win and 35 round groups. And another on the Nosler Partition, both great reads.

I did some shooting on that 7mm mag load. With 59 grains was shooting 2730 fps with 160 grain Accubonds. Group size was 1 moa. There were no signs of pressure so am planning on working on up! I am aiming to get 2900 -3000 fps.

I was about to point out that I'm using a 140, not a 150, but Nosler's data is the same for both bullets. So, the same starting load applies.


Yea, I have that issue of Handloader sitting on my desk. The "35-Shot Group" made me chuckle. I don't overlay my targets, but I often hand-plot multiple groups on a single target. Seeing them superimposed over each other can be beneficial.
And, Partitions.... I completely agree.

I just got back from Bass Pro, where I picked up some goodies, 140 grain Partitions for the .270 winny, and some 130 grain B-tips for said caliber, and 150 Etip bullets for my 30-06, I'm going to get my loading ON!!
On a serious side note: the shelves are bare compared to normal, they usually carry in stock about 100, 1 lb canisters of multiple brands of powder, and I saw only about ten, (mostly Clays, TiteGroup, etc.) I actually found in a different isle a lb of IMR 4350, so I bought it. It's looking bad.

Be sure to check that 4350, to make sure it wasn't tampered with.
