Well, I was all set to pick up a couple lbs of IMR4350 to start loading for my 280AI and the new 7mm-08 and the book numbers make this a pretty clear choice for a first powder to try. BUT the internet seems to support trying Re17 as a great alternate to IMR4350 even though there isn't much in the way of info on that load, especially for the 280AI!
First bullets will be 160 and 140 Accubonds. Other options are Barnes and Partitions depending on what they like.
The rifles are a 20" bbl 7mm-08 and a 24" barrel 280AI.
I also have a 325WSM that I already plan to try Re17 in so that is an extra push that direction.
Anyone have any ideas for starting loads? (anyone want to put the #'s through quick-load?) I will be loading in Winchester brass for the 7mm-08 and once fired Nosler factory brass for the 280AI. I have WLR and Fed210 primers on hand.
