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. Naughty
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.
