Hello, I am new to reloading. I have 175 grain copper clad bullets and Accurate #7. I am having a difficult time finding loading data for the 175 gr. Anyone used them before? What was a good recipe?

Agreed. One can use load data from heavier bullets in close weight proximity, but not from lighter ones.
Since a 180gr bullet is just a hair heavier it is permissable to use that data for a 175gr bullet of the same shape. A 180gr is more common so you may find data for it

What they said. I remember using published load data for AA7 for the 180 gr loads, under a 175 gr LSWC for 4/5 years when that was my favorite. I’m still unpacking and setting things up after moving, and my notes are in a safe place... Those loads did fine for me.
