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.

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.

Hi Paul.
Will give Karl a buzz didn't realise he had a .17 fireball, I bought his .221 fireball off him and love it that's why I'm going for the .17 as well. One will be dedicated NV.
