I use Reloader 22. With this powder the cases aren't overly full and the loads are compressed very much.  I get good performance with this powder in the 270 WSM and 7mm WSM. I have used Western Powders Mag Pro in the 300 WSM and liked it better than the Reloader 22 in this caliber. I haven't tried it in the 7 WSM yet.Big Smile

RL17, RL22, Ramshot Magnum, or any of the 4350s would be good places to start.

RL17 is formulated especially for Short mags.  I've used it in 270 and 300win and have gotten some surprisingly high FPS results for lighter loads!!!

I used RL-22, IMR-7828 back in the WSM days. Buddy using RL-17 now, and having good luck.

RL17 and 22. At least that is what I would start with.

I've been loading IMR4350 in 300WSM and 300 WM but the RL19 should be a good choice.
