advantanges of reloder 26

Reloader 26 has a few advantages that make it a popular choice among reloaders. It offers high velocity, low flash, and good temperature stability. It is easy to use and requires no external power source. Additionally, it is secure and consistent when used in extreme temperatures, and is low-cost and easy to find. Finally, it produces less recoil than other powder types, making it a great choice for target shooting and hunting.

disadvantages of reloder 26

The main disadvantage of using Reloader 26 is the difficulty of loading. It can be more difficult to load compared to other powder types, and there is a risk of misfiring in humid or moist conditions. Additionally, if stored for a long time, Reloader 26 can become hardened and need to be replaced. Finally, it produces more noise than other powder types, so it’s important to use proper hearing protection when using in a shooting range.

which gun uses reloder 26

Reloader 26 is commonly used in muzzle-loaded firearms and can ignite black powder or other propellant chemicals. It is also used in traditional hunting and target shooting activities, as well as in historical reenactments. It is suitable for a wide range of calibers, from .17 to .45, and is favored by reloaders for its consistent performance and precision accuracy.
Until recently, Alliant’s Reloder line has not provided competitive temperature stability characteristics.

is reloader 26 powder temperature sensitive:

It’s pretty temp stable.
I think it could vary more depending on primer and load density but for most
people in most situations it’s a non issue.

Of Course, yes reloader 26 powder is temperature sensitive.

This is a review from one of our client;

If you are part of the “Reloder 26” thread you have already seen this, but I felt it was

somewhat useful and could use it’s own thread.

I have seen other people make threads on this subject, but nearly every one I have seen,

the tests were conducted on different days,

which can inherently induce some inconsistencies, and may not be a fair test

. I am not by any means saying that the test I conducted was without flaws,

I just feel that it may take out some of the possible variables. And I do plan on repeating this

test in the future to check for consistency.

So here is how I conducted my test. I put 5 rounds in a zip lock bag in my freezer overnight,

then on my way to the range I put the rounds in a bucket filled with ice, and put my kestrel inside

so I had a temperature I could monitor and record.

The other rounds were kept at room temperature in my house,

then on my dashboard in my truck on the way to the range.

When I got to the range and set up my chronograph, I got my bucket of ice and pulled my

kestrel out and looked at the temp,

it registered 17° f, but by the time I thought to get my phone out and take a picture, it had warmed up to the 37,

as the ambient temp outside was in the high 60’s.

After this I put my kestrel in my ammo box with my room temp rounds, so it could stabilize and tell me the

temperature of those rounds while I fired the other ones.

First I shot the chilled rounds, pulling them out of the ice one at a time, and I shot them within about 3 seconds of chambering them,

and recording velocity.

Then after that, I let my barrel cool to room temp, then looked at the temp in my ammo box, which was 67 ° f.

Then I shot those 5 rounds, and recorded velocity.

 

  WARNINGS FROM THE MANUFACTURER:
  • Never mix any two powders regardless of type, brand, or source.
  • Never substitute any smokeless powder for Black Powder or any Black Powder substitute.

  1. Vanammo

    Just started working with Reloder 26 and I like it well enough to spend some time with it. For now, I thought I would pass along some results on velocity from a couple of loads. 24″ Barrel – 200 Feet – 52° 7MM Remington Magnum – 140 grain AccuBond – 71.0 grains RL-26 – 3,210 fps. 7MM WSM – 160 grain AccuBond – 71.0 grains RL-26 – 3,190 fps. Both of these loads weigh just shy of Alliant’s data for similar Nosler bullets. Work up your own loads from the data you find at Alliant, but I thought my results might be of interest to some. I hope Nosler and Hornady will soon give us some data on both RL-26 and RL-23.

  2. Vanammo

    Like the gentleman below this is a new powder and trying to get some info out there for you. First rifle vanguard accuguard 300 wby mag 24 inch barrel and is brand new to me so I can’t comment on accuracy good or bad.I used alliant load info as close as I could and split the difference between 180gr and 220gr load info listed to load my 200gr loads. I used new necked nosler brass with win. magnum primers. Temp was 60* at 1100ft for both rifles/loads info. I loaded up some 180gr accubonds over rl26 at 83.5grs, 84grs and 84.5grs. 84.5grs was the more accurate load and clocked 3152fps through a magnetospeed chrony. I seen no signs of high pressure what so ever.next loads were 200gr barnes lrx-bt over rl26 at 81gr, 81.5grs and 82gr. At 82grs they clocked 2921fps and again showed no signs of high pressure. Browning a-bolt 2 270 wsm 23 inch barrel, Norma brass with win. magnum primers. 130gr ttsx-bt over rl26 69gr, 69.5gr and 70gr. 70grs was the most accurate and lazering to the target at 3413fps!!! 140gr accubonds over rl26 at 68gr, 68.5gr and 69grs. 68gr was the most accurate and 68.5gr clocked a whopping 3315fps. Also no signs of high pressures. Rifle barrels seemed to take a little more to clean and did notice smoke in the air at the range after discharge. Overall I was pleased with this powder and look forward to retesting in the fall when Temps drop.

  3. Vanammo

    Tried RL26 in a custom short-throat 300 Wby, a 270 WSM, and a 280 Ackley. The 300 Wby has a 26″ custom barrel with a short throat like a standard 300H&H. It appeared to me this powder was designed for heavy for caliber bullets in magnum cartridges. In the 300 Wby I used 200 grain ELDX loaded to fit the M70 magazine,.060 from the lands, which yielded 3045 average velocity with a 0.246″ group at 100 yds. In the 270WSM I tried the 130 Swift, all that was available at the time, in a factory 270WSM, worked up and then backed off to an average velocity of 3325 with a 0.65″ group. In the 280 Ackley I tried 150TTSX with several loads and was unable to get a group under 2″, same with the 160TSX. It was too cloudy to get chronograph readings with the 280. The accuracy of the 270 WSM with the relatively light 130 gr. bullets surprised me, have not yet tried it with heavier bullets. This is obviously an outstanding powder with heavy for caliber bullets in magnum cartridges. It appears to have great potential for other magnum loadings as well.

  4. Vanammo

    I’m adding to my post below. I finally got some 150gr sierra gamekings for my browning a-bolt 270wsm. With a max load of reloder 26 I got 3191fps from a 23″ barrel. My best accuracy was achieved one grain down from max with 3 shots touching. I gave my friend some of this powder to try out in his 243win. and he had really good luck with it also. I’m sorry but I forgot what he said his barrel length and velocities were but he did say it was the fastest and most accurate powder he has used in his rifle and he has tried alot. He did a five shot string for standard deviation and only seen 3fps s.d.!

  5. Vanammo

    I’ve seen good results with this powder in a few different cartridges, a 243 win being one of them. It was bothering me that I couldn’t use it in my 260 rem or so I thought because there was no load data from alliance. I started comparing 243/260, powders and bullets and came up with my own load for the 260 rem with reloder 26 and 143gr eld-x bullets. Now my loads were compressed but not as much as I have done with other powder in the 260 rem. I worked up to my upper load with no signs of pressure at all. I put these done a 20″ barrel with 1 in 8″ twist and got 2835fps. This is about 150fps on average over a lot of powders I’ve used out of a 20″ barrel.

  6. Vanammo

    Just rebarreled my Md70 with a Hart 1:9 twist to shoot the Nosler Accubond longrange 150gr bullet. I got the group down to a .4″ group but when I switched to the Berger 150’s it shrunk to .15″ and the muzzle velocity was 3143fps by a magneto chronograph. The load was two grains under Alliant max load.

  7. Vanammo

    Just starting experimenting with this in my 280 with 150-160 grain bullets..Velocities are very impressive, even besting my favorite load with Reloder 22 by almost 100 fps, without pushing it to over-pressure levels, but it does fill the case. So, to get the best speeds, compressed loads are required. Accuracy is good, easily MOA, and I think it will get better with a little more load development. But Reloder 22 beats it in the 140 gr and under bullets. Meters decent and is about as clean burning as 22..If I can get the accuracy I do with RL-22 from this powder, this may replace RL-22 as my powder of choice for 154 gr Interbonds. Only problem is you can never find it in stock in the stores.

  8. Vanammo

    Best all around powder for many calibers i load for. Problem is i haven’t been able to find it anywhere for over 6 months. If i could find it i would buy it again!

  9. Vanammo

    Very Great Powder

  10. Vanammo

    I got My powder shipped on time

  11. Vanammo

    Works great

  12. Vanammo

    very good

  13. Vanammo

    I use this powder in everything from my 25-06, my 270, my 30-06, and my 7mm mag. It meters ok, depending on the load my RCBS uniflow powder flow meter will shear a grain every now and then. I weigh every 5th load, and I never vary more than .002 grains. Great powder for various hunting loads.

  14. Vanammo

    I use this powder in my Remington 700 long range 25-06. Using Remington brass, CCI 200 primers, 120gr speer grand slams and 52gr of h4831sc (max load per speer load data) I’m getting excellent sub moa groups at 100yrds. This is the 3rd 25-06 I’ve loaded for with excellent results for each with this powder from 90gr to 120gr bullets.

  15. Vanammo

    I recently began using this powder in a vintage Parker Hale 1200 Super chambered in .243 Win. with Winchester large rifle primers, Lapua brass, and Hornady Interlock 100 gr. BTSP bullets. It fills the case nicely and produces excellent precision at whitetailed deer stopping velocities (2900+ fps). Have harvested four deer with it this season. Three were DRT neck shots and the other was a shoulder shot on a doe who ran just 15 yards. Have also used IMR-4064 and IMR-4350 in the same rifle. Both are great powders, and I like the overall performance of H-4831SC even better.

  16. Vanammo

    best powder for consistency

  17. Vanammo

    Iv’e been loading my long barreled 284 that I built in Killeen Tex. back in ’63, The only powder that I’ve found to be consistent & not as temp. sensitive as others. I’ve tried other powders with similar burn rate, but I keep coming back to H4831, it may not be the fastest stuff out there, but when I want the 139 Hornady to hit in the same place every time, That’s my boy

  18. Vanammo

    Very consistent. G8ves super accuracy and velocity for true stopping power

  19. Vanammo

    I use this to hand load for my Winchester Coyote Light 270 WSM using Sierra 130 grain rounds. It meters quite well and makes for an excellent deer round.

  20. Vanammo

    Works very well in my 280 rem. excellent velocity and accuracy. Easily MOA @ 100 yards with 140 grain accubonds from my model 70 FW. Meters very well, clean burning and supposedly very temp stable. It ran almost neck and neck with Reloder 19, but RL 19 gave me slightly a slightly better “sweet spot” of the best speed and accuracy combination. if I could not get RL 19, I would use 4631 with the utmost confidence. It also showed a lot of promise in several other cartridges I tried it in like 270, 25-06, and 7mm-08..In short its a very versatile powder that performs excellent in a wide range of conditions and cartridges.
