NEW 300 WSM whats the max load on R17?

Hay guys just spent 40 min searching the net, fourms etc for load info. Here is what Im shooting.

300 WSM
R17
208g AMAX
Win Brass

I need a charge weight to start to worry at. I went to 61g of H414 today just to get a feel for the rifle and form some cases.

I have H4350 and got all the info for that but cant find any R17 info over 180g any one got any first hand info?

i would start at 61 and work up from there. So far (have not shot but three groups) 63 grains has shot the best for me at just under an inch and 3000fps. Not sure if i want to continue trying this bullet or just stick to the168s that is shooting so good for me. Anyway in my rifle 63 grains there was no sticky bolt lift and primers were slightly flattened. Hope this helps.

Well I have done some playing around. I have gone all the way to 63.8g of R17 in Win cases no pressure signs. All the groups are at about 3" at 200 yards. I'm shooting at mag length and the loads are not compressed. I am going to swap primers and see what happens next.
