    I was talking to a guy the other day who loads 150 grain nosler partitions with 64.5 grains reloader 22, I went home and was looking through my reloading books and couldn't find anything close to that with 150 grain bullets or reloader 22. I was just courious about that load and was thinking about trying it but was a little nervous without it being published with any combination of reloader 22 and 150 bullets in a 7mm rem mag.

    I don't have any books with me to look at but if it is not published, don't do it.

    I just checked the Alliant website and they have a load using reloader 22 and 145's.

    Simple.

    Email Nosler directly and let them know you are wanting to try their product but do not have sufficient load data. I did this for the 7mm Rem. Mag and the 160g bullets and they emailed me an excel spreadsheet which appeared to be taken directly from their manual.

    For what it's worth, they list the 160g Nosler Partition as having a max load of 63.0g of Reloder 22. So 64.5g of Reloder 22 and a 150g Nosler Partition for the 7mm Rem Mag. sounds like it would be in the ballpark.

    Email them for the actual load data for that bullet though, just to be safe.

    I just checked my current copy of the Speer Reloading Manual #14 and while it does not show any loads for 150 gr bullets, it does show loads for the 160 gr bullet and Reloader 22:
    Starting load 61.0 gr
    Max load 65.0 gr
    Both loads show the use of a CCI Mag primer. Hope this information is helpful to you. :)

    Nosler customer assistance has a pretty fast respond time, I e-mailed them yesterday afternoon and got a reply back waiting on me this morning when I logged on

    It was the same for me. I think I emailed them at around 10:00PM. I had a response before 9:00AM the following morning.

    Was the data you have in line with their data?

    I'll have to look again this evening, I looked through 2 Speer manuals,#11 and #13 a Nosler manual, a Hornady manual and a Hodgen manual, I don't remember what each had right off, but I'll look again
