Default Tried RE-17....a little concerned with charge weight

I ran out of my normal use powder and had to pick up some Alliant Reloader 17...Not using this powder before, I am a little concerned with charge weight and powder compression. I started at -10% off max of 48.7gr per Alliants website. This puts me at roughly 44gr. I am using Hornady Match BTHP 178gr and am already hearing a crunch followed by no sound upon case shakey , shakey....I checked my Lyman DPS III against my bar scale and the charge is legit.....just getting a compressed load @ what should be close to minimum charge.
Anyone run into this problem with RE-17?
