Has anyone ever tried reloading a 17 REM as I'm having real problems with 25 grain hornady v-max heads.
I've tried seven loads so far and every one of them key holes perfectly every time!
So far I have gone from slow to as fast as I'm willing to push the little round down the barrel, each time I've made a round I've made a complete copy but changed the head to a berger 25 grain fmj hollow point and these fire straight and stable and group perfectly can anyone explain why one 25 grain round flys stable and the other one key holes?
I'm using a sako with a custom barrel with varget powder, REM cases and magtech primers
Can any one help as I've never come across this and the only reason I can think of is the tail end of the round is deforming as it goes up the barrel which is causing the bullet to become un-stable.
Has anybody have any ideas or loads with different powders etc if not I've got 180 heads going real cheap!!
