Is 27 grains a doable load? I'm looking at the manuals I have but the closest one is for a 60 grainer.

27 grain of rl15 in a 223 case has gotta be tight, using 24 with 70 grain.

I don't think there's load data for that powder at that low weight of bullet?

I'd use the heavier bullet you have data for or switch to cfe or h335 or if you dont mind rat turd, varget is a good choice.

I load 27.0 grs with a 52 gr MK. (AEroE's load accuracy load.).

You will need a drop tube to get all of that powder in the case.

I do have some 55 gr bullets loaded with 27.0 grs Re-15 I haven't shot yet.

Because RE-15 is usually very hard to get because of it's popularity in competitive shooting circles I would consider using generic ball powder or H322, AA-2015 or RE-10X for 55 grain FMJ's. The only 55 grain bullet that has consistently good results on target is the one manufactured Hornady. Virtually every other brand is inferior.

It seems a waste to me to use one of the best heavy bullet propellants on 55 grain FMJ's. I would save the RE-15 for 68 to 77 grain match ammo.

But I've got a decent deal going for 6lbs for $135

I can just use it as blasting powder.

Six 1 pounders? Or are you not getting as good as a deal as you think, because RL15 comes in a 5 lbs jug.

Im guessing 6x1 lb bottles, or its way to much money.

It's not a smokin' deal but its better than even going with a 5lber. 1lb is 27 at midway and 5lb is 25 a lb. Plus I wold have to add in shipping.

blc2, 748 etc. are about the same.
