Anybody using RE17...I switched from RE15 to that and I saw almost a 300FPS increase in velocity using that powder...Its larger than the RE15, so its going to fill up your case more....I am squeezing in 51.5grs into a Lapua match case...I get between 2800-2850 FPS...Trying to tweek the group size but its shooting about 3/4th's to 1/2 MOA at 100. Shooting this out of a PSS 700 with a 20" 11.25 Rock bbl....With RE15 I was averaging about 2600 FPS and I was trying to shoot at 1000 and when its cold, it goes down to about 2400-2500 so I was comming in subsonic at 1k

I must go...I must smell that smell...The smell of burnt gunpowder blowing down the line, the sweet sound of lead connecting with metal...I have to have it and hear it....I know you know what I mean, I know Bob would know what I mean.... Its nothing that a little steri strips and some tegaderm won't fix...
