I'm a visitor here and need info about supplies of
Alliant RE-50. I am part of the guys doing the
work and development on the 12GA From Hell and
other big bores including my wildcats, 8ga, 4ga, etc.
I see your site has posted info and news releases, about the
new style Alliant powders, the RE17 and RE50. I can't
get get any of the RE50. Where can I buy some to
test in our research.I've had it on order for 9 months
at my local dealer.
We have used RE17 in real large diameter cases with
regular power rifle/shotgun primers and it ignites
reliably with no misfires. We are talking my 700HE,
12ga, 10ga, 8ga, 4ga. Any other powders slower than
IMR4759/4227 misfire, or have hangfires, with these
primers. So you can see why we want this type of powder.
In the cases we make from BMG/20mm brass using BMG primers
everything ignites ok.But the guns have to have
firing systems(springs,hammers) made quite a bit stronger.
Also one of the news releases stated that Alliant was going
to have a faster powder than RE17 and a little slower powder
than RE17, made with the same technology as RE17 and RE50.
Have these 2 different speed powders been developed yet?
I understand some of you on here were involved in the
early use and testing for RE-17. Maybe some would have
an inside track on Alliant and NitroChemie progress.
Hoping some here has heard of how they are doing..
Any help greatly appreciated. Ed Hubel.
