    I am just curious if anybody out there uses Rex powder?
    I am a components chair for my gun club and always looking for components for the guys to save some bucks. Considering lead prices.

    I've used Rex II exclusively for line loads since the powder was first introduced in the U.S. It loads and shoots almost exactly like Green Dot, but costs less than $9 per lb. in Missouri, after taxes(providing you buy in the 25 lb. lot). It leaves some residue, but so does Green Dot.

    I use Rex 1, 17.5gr with pink claybuster, 1 oz shot, STS hulls and Fiocchi primers. $10 lb is what I pay for 25lb keg.

    Like it Rex 11 a lot. Price is right at less than 10$ a pound.

    FPS is right about 1200, perhaps a tad more but not much.

    18.3 REX I, F209A, Windjammer II, and 475 grs. shot in Fed Top Gun/Estate hull.

    1220 fps, 80 percent pattern in my TMX. Great for handicap and soft shooter.

    20.4 REX II, F616, Windjammer II, and 475 grs. shot in Win AA (HS) hull.

    1230 fps, 78 percent pattern in my TMX.

    17.4 REX I, F616, WJ II, and 440 grs. shot in WIN AA/STS, G.C., N27 hull.

    1205 fps, 82 percent pattern TMX. These work for me. Richard
