    help with reloading .17 hornet

    Any help or info of what powders ect.. to reload my .17 hornet . i have a recipe using Hodgson H110 but this only achieves 3200 fts as factory loads reach 3650 fts , loosing over 400 fts seems a lot to me. anyone out there got a nice recipe they would like to share ?? will be much appreciated ..

    Thanks guys

    I've used H4198, H322 and Lil'Gun for about three years now. What bullet?
    I use Berger, Hornady and Nosler. All much the same but prefer Berger TBH.
    Assume 20grain: I'd load with Lil'Gun but you need to be very wary and use 0.1grain increments working the loads up.
    I have some PDFs kicking about I'll look them out. Better PM me an email...

    accurate 1680 or vit n120 worked well for me easily achieving factory speeds.

    Thanks for that, i wil be using 20grain hornady, when you say H4198 and H322 i presume these are Hodgsons powdwers

    will do. I thought about a 17 remmington but i am told they can burn a barrel with hot loads in as little as 500 rounds, not sure if thats true tho !!

    seems to low i think more like 1500

    My mate is getting 3,250 with 25gr V-Max using Lil Gun and his barrel has been shortened quite a bit too. I suggest you persevere a bit more with H110 and give Lil Gun a try
