I have shot some RL-19 out of my 7mm-08, with 140's, and accuracy/volocity was splendid. I know LVR was developed for a narrower usage, but where have y'all used these powders and to what results?

I'm looking at the 7mm-8 and 338 Fed specifically, but would like to hear from everyone.

I only use W748 for 7mm-08. Looked through my book and don't find RL 19 working best for anything..

I tried RL19 in my 7-08 worked good, but supposedly its not very temperature stable.

Shot fair...5 shots 100 yards:

I use RL 19 in 30-06 & 338 WM very successfully.

Out of desperation, I'm going to try it for a 300 WM that refuses to shoot anything more than a shotgun pattern.

I use the RL-19 in .270 WSM with 140 g accubonds, has been the best load I can find for it. Luckily, I've been able to find RL-19 on the shelf in Idaho Falls a few times, now got a bit on hand.

i cant speak to rl-19 but its pretty hard to beat LVR in 35 rem with 220 speers.
