    That would be a good bet. What’s your max COAL in your .260 Rem?

    Actually im talking shit. Zero compression, thats my 2209 load.
    42 RL16 seems real light compared to the 2209 brew. Start safe anyway

    Sounds great...read an article that showed it to be more temp. stable than 2209.
    I think ill use it for 260 and 284 when I run out of w760
