Anyone loading this boolitt with RL 7?
RDs load data says 42.3gr RL7. Seems like A moderate load to me.
What you using.

Gaterskinner - i shot my first 460-425 RD's today. :)
Was using H4895 and as well as they shot, I'm not changing powders anytime soon. 8)

RD tests his loads in REM brass, so in all fairness you could modify your rounds according to the brass you use.

I load a 420 NOE (very similar boolit) over H4198 (similar to RL7) and his data shows 41g max, but I use WIN brass and I loaded my rounds at 42g and could have gone a bit higher.

He takes the time to pressure test these things, so if he says max is at "X" point, I believe him.
