Well......I finally got some bench time with the 17 PPC. This thing shoots! Rifle is a Hall B nestled in a Richard's Custom Rifles Stock in Rutland "Desert Camo" laminate. This rifle shoots flat as a pancake and will flat knock a yote or fox flat on their butts! I took 7 foxes in 3 days on one farm in 2005. Ranges were from 260 - 389 yards. And crows better look out too! That 30 gr. Kindler is very accurate and seems to dump all of it's energy in the target. I have shot the 30 gr. to 600 yards and it seems like it was made for that distance. Hard to believe that a little bullet like that will buck conditions that far.
|VARGET||30 GR. Kindlers||Velocity||Remarks|
|47||Loads are in "clicks"||3890|
|48||4042||very good .128|
|47.5||4124||0.247Caution. Accurate …but may not work in hot weather|
|45||4204||Rifle does not like this powder|
Barrel is a Lilja 1-9 tw, 26 in. with a .197 nk. Fed 205 Match primers were used with all loads. Loads are in clicks, not grains. A Harrells powder measure was used and a Nikon 6.5x20 scope was used. All groups are @ 100 yards.
Caution: This load data works in my gun .... reduce all loads at least 10% and work up.
Rifle was built by Richard's Custom Rifles
