    Anyone using 162 GR AMAX in 7mm-08 w/ RL17, I need load info. I can find it for Varget but not RL17.

    I never tried the A max bullet . I'm using RL17 powder and I was messing with the 168 bergers but I switched to the 140 grain bergers . quickload says ;
    162 A max , RL17 , 24" bbl , 2.800COAL, 42.7 grains is max , 98.1% case fill , 2735 FPS . hope this helps . Jim
