RS36 – Reload Swiss RS débuts new long gun powder at the IWA&Outdoor Classics 2016

RS36 is the new long gun powder from Reload Swiss RS, the Nitrochemie Wimmis AG brand for high-performance propellant powders. It will be presented to the public for the first time at the IWA&Outdoor Classics 2016 in Nuremberg.

The new RS36 enables shooters to enhance their handloads even further in the range between the current long gun powders RS30 and RS40. It has been optimised for calibre 7.62 x 39 mm, 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. RS36 will be available through the proven Reload Swiss RS distribution network as of spring 2016.

This year as well, the Reload Swiss Team will be on hand at the IWA&Outdoor Classics, Europe’s largest specialist trade show for shooting, hunting, outdoor gear and official security applications. At Europe’s largest and most important trade show for sport shooting and hunting, visitors from all over the world will have an opportunity to learn about RS36 and all other quality Reload Swiss RS products in hall 7, booth 7-226 from Friday, 4 March 2016 to Monday, 7 March 2016. We’re looking forward to seeing you at our trade show stand in Nuremberg!
