Check the Nosler site they have a good starting loads data sheet for the 7mag.

I allways had good luck with the H 4831 for 1000 yrd matches .

65.5 grs of H4831 with a 168gr SMK @ 3152 ft/sec was my most accurate load (Hot but not
to hot).

And now with H4831sc it is easer to measure.

Did it give you max grains for max pressure?

Nonya, if and when you get a good RL17 load worked out for the 7RM, please let us how it does.

Thanks,
