Is accurate LT-32 powder suitable for the 300 BO with any bullet weight or is it too slow??? TNX

ernierod,

So far, Accurate only has limited caliber load data available for LT-32. They do have loads for the .223/5.56, .30-30, up to the .308, mostly with light bullets. It's not in QuickLOAD yet, either.

The Accurate burn chart actually shows it as faster than Reloader 7 by one line so I doubt heavy bullets will be a good option with it.

Have you seen this on the shelf, or did you buy some?

Thanks WonderMan4. Just ordered two 8 lb jugs... A small grain extruded powder should work well in a progressive, so I'm going to work up some varmint loads.

I guess this is supposed to be a good benchrest powder for the 6mm PPC, so surprised it's available. I can't imagine what the guys who are competing are doing for powder right now.

Good job with your load workup, Ernie. Happy that you found the sweet spot for your rifle. I think that LT32 is going to be another versatile one to work with.
