    Can IMR 7828 be loaded the same as 7828 ssc?

    Yes.

    From the IMR website Smokeless Rifle Powders

    7828 SSC

    This magnum rifle powder has exactly the same burn rate as standard IMR 7828 and uses the same data. However, due to the super short kernels, metering is virtually as good as a spherical powder. This allows up to 4% more powder space in the case and in many loads yields more velocity than standard 7828. Such loads are marked with an asterisk in the data to show where standard 7828 will not fit.

    They have the reloading data online in a PDF file that you can use.
