7mm WSM and Reloder 17

Wanted to work some loads up and see if I could do any better than I have with H1000. I figure I'll get more velocity. Anyone have any pet loads with this powder?

The problem with pet load is always that what is a perfect pet in one rifle can be a perfect pest in another.

A starting point for you would be the Alliant recipes. Note they use Federal 215 primers (pretty hot) and Winchester cases (pretty capacious) and stick to those if you copy the recipes. If you don't like what you're seeing accuracy-wise, read through Dan Newberry's site or a systematic method of finding what you want.
