    I hope you find your awnser here but in the meantime you should check out reloders net or something maybe look at the website of the manufacture. I am interested in this info as well as its still such a new powder.

    I have shot 64Grains of reloader 17 with a 165G tsx velocity was around 3000 and no pressure signs. Accuracy was about 1 1/2 at 100

    The alliant website lists 68 as the max for RL-17 with a 165 gr Speer.

    Right now I am getting 3180 out of my 300WSM with 168 gr tsx over charge of 67.3gr. I suspect I maybe able to get a bit more out if it. I stopped there not because of pressure but it was shooting very accurately and I was out of time. I was happy because that is pretty damn fast for a 168gr bullet out of a 300WSM
