Ok, I need some load data for the 17Rem,just ordered a 24 inch bull barrel for my Encore in the same caliber,and I'd like to have some loads ready when it gets here in 10 to 12 weeks. I have several powders on hand, but no load data.I have IMR 4350,IMR 4198,IMR 4831,IMR 4195,and H380 on hand.Please share any info you may have on the best load for 25 or 30 grain bullets,and the best bullet,fur wise.If none of the above powders will work, I don't mind ordering another,one or two more won't make a difference. Also,please share any links,and recommend any load data books for the 17Rem you think might be good.Lastly,thanks,ahead of time.Much obliged.

I'm going from memory so don't take this as gospel but IMR 4198 and the Rem 25 gr bullet was my favorite combo,seems to me 25.5 gr was the load but I'll check when I get home. Memory gets tricksie after 50.

Thanks for the tip,SNR, know the meory loss feeling well,they say 3 things go as you get older,the first one is your memory, I'll be damned if I can remember the other 2! I'm pushing 52 myself!

Looking forward to a reply,I just ordered some hornady 25 grain JHP's,as well as some Berger's.I also purchased some IMR 4320.
