got the sensational seventeen's book that a friend of mine kindly posted me from the USA.
cheers jim i owe you mate. thanks for going out your way to get me the book posted to yours then on to mine here.
i have only had a quick look through it. but all ready can see this guy know's a thing or two about 17's and 20 caliber cf rifles. there is write up's. all the load data you could want for all the different 17 caliber cf rifles.
he also talks about the 17 he uses for pushing a 30 grain gold line range of bullets he makes. with a bc of .270 i bet thats a varmints worse nightmare.
just a shame we cant get his bullets over here. i did hear reloading solutions use to get stuff from him. but since all the export rules and price he doesnt ship them here anymore
anyone that is interested in these little calibre's or just wants a good read up from a guy in the know should buy one.
with all the talk about different calibre on site's in the uk lately bigger isn't always better when varmint shooting even at the ranges these little 17 can reach out to according to his data. which is a 17 Remington tactical from what i can tell.
30 grain bullet with bc of 0.270 pushed at 4000+ fps with little recoil,noise and powder
really is fun to use i bet.
all i need now is my fireball to be finished and ticket to drop on the matt. and sinclair's to find out what has happened to my reloading die's
