I find RE17 to be very consistent from the same lot, some people have said that they have experienced inconsistencies from lot to lot, I have yet to experience this.
The only thing I have tried that was less than 200gr. was 168gr. TSX rounds, and they shot like crap. My rifle loves the heavy rounds, I have yet to find one that it didn't like. Hopefully my next experiment will be with 215gr. Berger Hybrids and 230gr. Hybrids under RE17 to see what this powder is really capable of, for now I'm toning it down a bit in preparation for hunting season here.
