17 remington reloading receipe

I would like to get reloading receipe for 17 Remington using accurate 1680 if possible as that is my powder of choice for 221 fb rife. Varget would also work well.

Re: 17 remington reloading receipe

Out of my rifle working upto 24.5 of Varget should work with a 25 gr. Hornady.
Other loads I have shot with a 25 gr. Hornady HP are:

1. 25 grs to 26 gr. of CFE223 AVG VEL 3885FPS

2. 25GR. VARGET AVG VEL 3874

3. 23 GR. H4895 AVG VEL 3931

4. 24 GR BLC2 AVG VEL 3952

4 26GR H414 AVG VEL 3780

Other powders you may try : RL15, IMR4320, H322,
All loads were safe in my rifle, your mileage may vary. Work up slow in the .17Rem.
Only primer used was a Remington 7 1/2.
CLOA was longer than books shown in manuals but not into the rifling.
Enjoy your .17 Remington, load and shoot it enough and you will fall in love.

Re: 17 remington reloading receipe

thank you for response I think I will be working with varget as I also use it in my
223 and 223ai. I will also work up load for 20 grain bullet. I have large cal rifles but do enjoy shooting the small cals. At my age small cal with large scope seem to be a good combination

Mate I would go the 20gn Vmax and 24.5gn of varget. I've tried numerous load combinations and keep going back to this one.
