Enforce Tac/IWA 2016: RS36 – Reload Swiss RS Debuts New Long Gun Powder

Reload Swiss RS,  Nitrochemie Wimmis' brand for high-performance propellant powders, debuts a new long gun powder RS36, which enables shooters to enhance their handloads even further in the range between the current long gun powders RS30 and FS40. It has been optimised for calibre 7.62x39mm, but is also ideal for handloads in the lever-action segment - such as .30-30 Winchester, .444 Marlin or .45-70 Government. This extruded single-base nitrocellulose powder is also suitable for .222 Remington and .223 Remington with light bullets up to 50 grains. The camphor-treated surface makes possible a balanced temperature response with moderate pressure at higher temperatures.

Nitrochemie Wimmis AG is a joint venture of Rheinmetall and RUAG that specialises in propellants.
