A century of experience in manufacturing and the most stringent quality control procedures in the industry support each container of Alliant smokingless powder. In a ballistic laboratory, chemical composition, grain shape, size and overall density are constantly tested for consistency.
Produced in Switzerland by Rheinmetall Nitrochemical Some of the same features as Reloder 17 are shared by Reloder 33. Reloder 33 uses the same proprietary burn rate control elements impregnated in kernels. This enables the pressure curve to be consistent, with the late spike adding up to 150 ft/s to a similar powder. This powder, which was developed for the 338 Lapua Magnum, works very well with other large magnum and ultra-magnum capacities.
Next, Alliant introduces Reloder 33, a powder that is first introduced in Reloder 17 using the same kernel-impregnation technology. Nitrochemie also makes Reloder 17. Alliant’s powder Reloder 33 uses a proprietary process like Reloder 17, through which the powder kernels are impregnated with the elements controlling the burn rate. The peak pressure point is delayed and the pressure curve is smoothed. This effectively enables the powder to produce energy at a steadier rate, generating a total speed of up to 150 fps more than any other powder. Reloder 33 has been designed for the Lapua Magnum, but it can be fitted with other large and ultra-magnum magnums.
To reach their ballistic peak, certain cartridge loads require special propellants. This is why, after years of research and development, Alliant Powder® developed Reloder® 33.The advanced powder is specially designed for the Lapua Long Range, but also for a variety of large rifle cartridges.
Designed specifically for the Lapua .38
Suitable also for a range of large gun cartouches
Superior compatibility to a lot.

Bought to try because retumbo can’t be found . After a few loads , which all grouped good . I found a load that gave me a 5 shoot one hole group at 300 yards with my 338 lapua mag . I made another order for 5 lbs.

This powder so far has exceeded my expectations. I have managed to reach velocities of 3359fps with Federal match Magnum primers and a 175 grain accubond long range bullet with my Browning X bolt Pro long range 28 Nosler with a 1 in 8 twist 26 inch barrel. All loads tested averaged about 12fps deviation and I managed to pull 1/2 inch groups or less at a 100yrds. I settled in with a mid-range powder charge with 3170fps with a 1/4 group. Not sure how this powder will hold up to Temp sensitivity. Last time out I managed to hit three out of three on a 8 inch Target at 1065yrds.
