re-loader 17 7wsm results

No load data on 180 berger vld in 7wsm with re-loader 17 so I chronograph some rounds. I shot each powder charge twice just to make sure my numbers were right. This out of a 27 1/2 inch brux barrel. Temp was 95, and humidity was 100%.

55 grains velocity 2768

56 grains velocity 2795

57 grains velocity 2852

58 grains velocity 2869

59 grains velocity 2939

60 grains velocity 2979 (bolt a little sticky, light extractor mark)

61 grains velocity 3032 (heavy bolt flatten primer heavy extractor mark) to hot for me!!!

I'm pushing a 168gr with r17 at almost 2900 with a 17.5" barrel. I'm gonna try some 180's soon, once it cool's down a little
