all I use a 22 mag for is fall gobblers and fox, I really like the fed 50 gr hp's, but about 125-150 yds is all I ever shoot.

I agree the 50 grainer's are deadly........

Re: 22mag

Got one of the Savage HB mags, put on a 3-9 Redfield, and the 33gr Vmax is one hole at 50yds. Have a case of Fed Prem with the older bullet and it shoots it fine, but not as tight as the Rem. We have a 10" sq. gong at 300yds and I held the top edge of the target and popped it 3 straight with the 33gr.Vs. I was amazed. I did have feeding problems with CCI HPs. Too big a front cavity. The Winchester old white box FMJs shot one hole, too, and the hps were right behind. My new close-range dog gun and will take it to Colorado in June. Might even leave the 223 home and just haul the mag and 22-250. Bob

Re: 22mag

I've been loading my own lately and I am getting 2640fps with a 40gr v-max. The performance is great compared to factory loads.

Re: 22mag

6mm shooter, what powder are you useing to get 2600.
I started loading my own with v-max moly's and am getting 2300 and some change.
With the moly I'm not getting much for pressure signs, I've been utilizing the factory cci + v charges.

Reloading rimfire?
Where can I get more info/materials to start. Can this be done for the 17 HMR?

Re: 22mag

I am using Lil'Gun. I started at 5gr behind the 40gr V-max and worked up from there. My max load ended up being much higher. The case won't fit much more without serious compression.

There are no actual supplies for loading the 22Mag. I buy winchester dyna points, pull the bullets, dump the powder and reload. Costs me about $35CND for 100 rounds but the performance is worth it. That being said I still shoot my hornet more often.

I love it when my friends ask me to come out shooting gophers with them and their 17HMRs. They get really jellous really fast.
