    .17 rem load info

    Hi, anyone got the Hornady reloading guide, looking for the min and max load info for 20g VMAX and 25g VMAX bullets using Viht N133. Cheers

    Same as Jordang.

    21.5 grns V133 - behind a 25 vmax.

    Not done lots of testing with 20grn bullets. The 25 grn pills zipping at 4000fps with a better BC. - 20's are redundant

    Varget is another very good powder for this cartridge. 25 grains, with a 20gr V max Gives 4200 fps mv

    Getting 4300+ with 20gn dogtown bullet and n133. It is a hot load but no loose primers or heavy bolt lift.
    Really clean burning too 50 shots and no loss of precision and accuracy!

    Thanks chaps, gives me a good start point....I'll work up from there ....Agree, the 25g look to be my preferred bullet due to the BC but do fancy having a try with the 20s also.

    BC on 172 bullets is like a barn door, hardly worth worrying about in reality. Both the 20 and 25 gn are ~.2 which is poor - ultimately the difference only being a c... hair between them.
    The extra 300fps makes up for the BC difference! You should see the velocities with the 17 grain bullet!!!

    The best bullet for the .17 Rem is the 25 grain V-Max, it has a BC of .230 instead of the 20 grain V-max with a BC of .185. Considering the bullet size and weight of the 25 Grain V-Max It has quite a high BC, along with 4000ftps makes for a good wind bucking varmint cartridge.
