RELOADER 25 DATA=Please Help

Greeting all,
I am new to this site and was hoping to get some advise/help on finding data sheet for Reloader R-17/R-22 R25 powders?

I have a 300 Wm and a friend told me that he was using R25 with 180 Gr bullets and getting real good results.

I have not been able to find the info on this as I always like to verify a pet load before trying it myself.

All the manuals I have access to will show a minimun load and a max load.
But once again I am looking for something like this for R-25.

Any help appreciated

    Alliant has a website where they list load data

    Thanks,
    I saw that. I guess what I am looking for is something like Hodgdons site where different bullets are listed, with min and max loads but apparently it does not exist.

    My load was 82 grains of reloader 25. And a federal 215 primer with 180 gr hornady psp. The load was slightly compressed. 3140 fps. Most accurate in a ruger 77 tang safety. It had a real long throat and only liked flat based bullets.. work up from well below as this load comes from the later 1990's... rl 25 may not be as slow as when it first came to the market... I'd start around 75 gr and work up from there... i was limited to oal of 3.340 in that ruger mag

    Thanks,
    The load in question is 73G of R25 with Older Remington Bronze tips 180gr
    Coal of 3.340

    Said it shoots real well but according to your "pet" this seems to be on the light side?

    Thanks for your input,.

    I might also try H1000 with the 180's

    Yes 73 gr seems light.. with rl25 i doubt the fps speed is very fast at all... many use 75-76 gr rl22 for a pet load w/180s in 300 win mag..

    Only way to know how 25 will work for ur gun is to try it... use a chrono so you can tell if its worthwhile...
