Re: Laod data HELP!

You'll find some data for the 7mm RM in this article...

Alliant Reloder 17

Have you tried Retumbo for those cartridges?

I believe RL17 is more suited for short mags and such.

Norma MRP 2
Norma MRP
Vihtavuori N560
IMR 7828
IMR 7828 SSC

For the 8 mag w/180 (I used the Barnes TSX bullet) RL17 did come up. It starts at about 72g and goes to a max of 77g.

Good luck.

Thanx Storm,the 7mag is listed on the link above but for some reason they butchered the 150 gr load data,did they give a max FPS on the 8 mag load?

Re: Load data HELP!

Quickload came up with 74.1g of RL17 for the 180 TSX at 58403 psi (max is 66717 psi) and a velocity of 3079 f/s with a 24 inch barrel. If I ran the max psi it shows a velocity of 3195 f/s at pressure of 66554 psi.
