Re: Need Powder advice on 7MM WSM

I am pushing 162gr Amax 3044fps behind H1000,with a 27" barrel.It is a tad over a max load,but I have no pressure signs,and has good accuracy.

I'm surprised I'm not hearing more about RL17. Any of you 7 WSM shooters tried it yet?

I had one heck of a time getting RL17 and few people are using the 7WSM. I am guessing not many have tried it.
I finally found 2 jugs of RL17 and bought them both. It works wonders with the 06 for sure. I am guessing the charges in the 7WSM might be reduced compared to some slower powders like RL22 and R25 so a improvement in velocity may not be as significant.
