    18.4g H322 over 20g vmax. Remington 7 1/2 primers sweet little load. The .1 increments really can make a difference in this little cartridge. And doesn't show pressure easily keep your eyes open.

    25 grain berger, 17 grains of N130, REM 6 1/2 primer, just over 3500 fps.

    Best foxing cal I have ever used, no recoil to speak of so scope / nv stays on target, pass throughs virtually non existant, noise level acceptable near habitation at night, I limit my shots to 200 yards for 100% knockdown on fox with 20 grain V max.

    25 grn bergers over 18.4 of benchmark tends to shoot in the .2s for tip get anal on brass prep as it makes a huge difference in 17s
