    I tried 26 grains of Win 760 with hornady 25grain hps and got some better results with that(not that much better though only about 1.5 MOA). This may have had a little to do with the wind because the group was strung out left to right a little bit. Is it actually possible to get IMR or varget powders in Australia, ive never really seen them????

    The “best load” I ever came up with was; Bullet… Remington's 25gr HP’…, when you could get them, you may find a few still around… if not… {Substitute Hornady 25gr HP} The powder charge I used was; 22.8grs {which is what Remington factory load weighed out at} the powder I used VV-135…. in a Remington case, with a Remington 7 1/2 BR...Primer. Cartridge OAL same as factory. This load shoots in all the .17 Remington’s I’ve owned; at about 4040 fps’…, the advertised Remington velocity. The factory ammo was and is very accurate ammo, this load may possible be Remington’s recipe. You won’t be disappointed if you can find all the components. I've shot many Yotes with this load; it was a “very, very accurate” load off the bench, and in the field.
