Check out the data for Retumbo and see how it matches


quick load says , 69.0 grains of Retumbo gives 2930FPS 104.5% case fill but a very low psi load . this load gives 47923 psi PMAX and the 7 WSM is rated at 64542 psi PMAX . Retumbo does look like it's close to the AR2225 velocity wise . Jim

I don't have AR2217 listed either .

H1000 shows a max load of 71.0 grains 109.3 % case fill ( 63965 psi PMAX) and the velocity is 3121 FPS . hope this helps . Jim
