I received my order of RL-17 and had the chance to load 20 rounds last night.
So this morning went to the range about 11:45AM.
Outside temp. 89 degs. F., barometric press. 30.03, and Sunny.
Thanks to all for your help!

I am excited by your results. I have a savage 16 in 300 wsm I haven't even shot yet (guilty of having more than 1 rifle I like to use ). I have some RL 17 and have been wondering about performance. I hope to have some results like you have, but who knows???

Thanks for posting that!

Question, what primers did you use? How far from the lands did you seat your bullet?

Where did you find a Berger Manual? I've been put on a waiting list for one but no one has contacted me about them yet.
