I am looking for a load for the maxi using Alliant's Power Pro 300-MP. Anyone have a reciepe? TIA
Here's a few from Alliant:
Alliant Powder - Reloader's Guide
Let me know how that powder works for you as I need a good load for 357 myself.
Alliant doesn't show a load for the .357MAX.
Hodgdon does though, but only in the pistol category.

You may have to change powder brands Duke.
I use 296 as my accurate load in the Max.
ah, that's what i get for reading before coffee.
Thanks guys. I've just been reading about this powder and thought it would be great in my Bellm Barreled G-2.
Supposed to bump 357 mag to 1700 fps in a 10 inch SBH.
You could almost definately just use the 357 mag load data as a starting point.
Thanks again toolfan. I am going to load a 180g a HCFPGC. I think a good starting point would be 20g.
Since you are loading cast, you might want to poke around here:
Cast Boolits - Dedicated To The World Of Cast Bullets!
Edit to add - Looking at my lyman manual and comparing 357 mag and 357 max, 20 gr sounds pretty high.
In fact, for a bullet that heavy, that sounds dangerous.
I'd give alliant a call before loading anything.
I have Bellm bbl in the TC also, Dan wesson ss Supermag. One of the best .35 cal rounds.
Used in the midwest for Deer according to Mike Bellm
custom cast bullet molds from LBT molds.
