Re: Loads for the 17 remington???

I like to use BR4's.

When I messed with mine, seating depth made a whole lots of difference. I cannot stress that enough.

    On the primers for a .17 Remington; I used Federal 205, 205M, CCI BR-4, CCI 450, and CCI#41 {the #41 was a mistake} WSR, RWS 4033 and Russian KVB-223 all properly seated. The Remington 7 1/2 BR couldn't be match.

    ps: on the #41 it seems most bolt type {none free floating} firing pins have to hit it more than once... they are hard to pop do to heavier primer cup.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for all your help. I found a really good load with 30 grain berger projectiles(my rifle has a 1:9 twist), 21.5 grains of benchmark 2 and remington 7 1/2 primers. It shoots regularly 1/2 moa to 3/4 moa.
