RS62 Rifle Powder
RS62 propellant was originally developed for 270 Win., but is also superb for .30-06 Spring. cartridges. In terms of vivacity, it approaches RS60 , but RS62 operates with significantly lower energy content and thus produces less barrel wear. A genuine alternative for shooters who are looking for a straightforward, honest, easy-to-use propellant powder for magnum cartridges in light and medium-weight applications.
