I have 120 bullets and 130s. I want to use rl17. Alliant website lists 110 grain bullet with 59.5 grains of powder.
They list 130 grain bullet with 56 grains of powder
Should I split the difference for a max load for the 120s. Thanks.

You should be completely safe with the heavier bullet starting charge and work up from there. Perhaps someone will chime in that uses quickload. Those are light bullets for the caliber.

I would start at least at 55 or 56 max, just in case, 57 you might be pushing max already as all rifles are different so better safe than sorry.
