I called Alliant directly and left a message for a Ben Amonette to call me back. He did so yesterday regarding the availability of the new Rel #17, which is specifically designed for the WSM`s to increase velocity along with better accuracy.
Demand is very high, supply is very short! They literally ran out! New shipments will begin in late Nov and into Dec.
Here is a direct link to a bulletin talking about Rel #17 in detail. Within that article, you can also link on to some reloading data recipes. There are also some good velocity increases for other cartridges as well including the 150 gr. `06.
As an example.....For the 300 WSM, Rel #17 gave a 104 fps increase using the same 180 grainer vs all other powders listed in the Speer manual (66 gr Rel #17; 180gr. @ 3082 fps), where before Rel 17`s existence, the best velocity from any powder that Speer listed for the 300 WSM was 2978 fps.
