    You'll find some data for the 7mm RM in this article...

    Alliant Reloder 17

    Have you tried Retumbo for those cartridges?

    I believe RL17 is more suited for short mags and such.

    Re: Load data HELP!

    I ran Quickload to see what it had to say and RL 17 didn't make the cut for the 7 mag. These are all the powders that came up.

    Vihtavuori N570
    Alliant Reloder-25
    Ramshot Magnum (Big Boy)
    Norma MRP 2
    Norma MRP
    Vihtavuori N560
    IMR 7828
    IMR 7828 SSC
    Accurate MAGPRO
    Hodgdon H1000
    Alliant Reloder-22
    Winchester WXR
    Hodgdon Retumbo
    Alliant Reloder-19
    Hodgdon H4350
    Ramshot Hunter
    IMR 4350
    Hodgdon H4831 SC
    Hodgdon H4831
    Norma 204
    Norma URP
    Accurate 4350
    Winchester Supreme 780
    IMR 4831
    Vihtavuori N165
    Accurate 3100
    Vihtavuori N160
    Vihtavuori 24N41
    Hodgdon Hybrid 100V
    Vihtavuori N170
    Hodgdon H870
    Vihtavuori N150
    Hodgdon US 869
    Hodgdon 50BMG
    Vihtavuori 20N29
    Accurate 8700

    For the 8 mag w/180 (I used the Barnes TSX bullet) RL17 did come up. It starts at about 72g and goes to a max of 77g.

    Good luck.

    Thanx Storm,the 7mag is listed on the link above but for some reason they butchered the 150 gr load data,did they give a max FPS on the 8 mag load?gun)

    Re: Load data HELP!

    Quickload came up with 74.1g of RL17 for the 180 TSX at 58403 psi (max is 66717 psi) and a velocity of 3079 f/s with a 24 inch barrel. If I ran the max psi it shows a velocity of 3195 f/s at pressure of 66554 psi.

    Check the Nosler site they have a good starting loads data sheet for the 7mag.

    I allways had good luck with the H 4831 for 1000 yrd matches .

    65.5 grs of H4831 with a 168gr SMK @ 3152 ft/sec was my most accurate load (Hot but not
    to hot).

    And now with H4831sc it is easer to measure.

    Did it give you max grains for max pressure?

    Nonya, if and when you get a good RL17 load worked out for the 7RM, please let us how it does.

    Thanks,
