Alliant Reloder 17 Powder in Stock at Grafs.com

Allilant Reloder 17 powderUPDATE: Grafs.com is temporarily SOLD OUT as of 7/31/2008.

Based on German Salazar’s recent Reloder 17 powder test on this website, many readers have been anxious to try out this new double-base powder. German found that Reloder 17 provided dramatically enhanced velocities for his 6XC, and it looks promising for other cartridges which work well with H4350 or H4831sc.
