RL17 will most likely get you the best velocity.

Re: powder for rem. 7saum

I'm currently using 56.5 gr of RL17 with 168 gr Bergers. I'm getting 3050 fps out of a 28" barrel with no pressure signs. I plan on trying H1000 or H4831sc because of the temp stability.

Are you finding RL17 to be temp sensitive?

I haven't had a chance to shoot it in warm weather but I'm told that over about 80 degrees the RL powers will be hot. I'm looking for a powder that I can shoot prairie dogs in the summer and coyotes in the snow with the same drops.

Re: powder for rem. 7saum

Alliant "claims" that RL17 is temp stable at higher temps. I've read conflicting user reports on it. I'll be experimenting this spring with my 25-06.
