The first powder that gave me consistent results in my 300 WSM was Hodgdon's Hybrid100, but when I tried Alliant RL-17 I gained over 100 fps and my groups were sub-MOA. In addition, I tried this powder in my 338 Win Mag with 225gr bullets and again reduced my group sizes with increased velocity. I did not have good results in either 280 AI or 30-06 AI, but that could be gun specific. I have no doubt this is THE short mag powder of choice.

I have used this powder in 300wsm, 270win, 308win and have had great success with accuracy and velocity improvements. It meters very good (RCBS) with no or very little cut powder. It burns clean and gives me great latitude in bullet weights. I have used it with 155gr Barnes Match burners in the 300wsm and the 308win. 140gr bullets in the 270win yielded a + in velocity with loads less than max from the Alliant site. I find the info easier to get if you go to the product ie. R-17 and then to loads it will bring up all loads they have for different calibers and then you can select your load. Barnes bullets have worked up loads using R-17 and will give you data on the phone if you need them since they haven't published them yet.
All in all its a powder that is flexible enough with calibers and bullets weight to be in most of our powder lockers. Hey its made in Switzerland by folk who make powder for rockets and tank shell. Its good and if it will stay available get some.
