I would do several targets at convenient distances like 25yds, 50yds, 100yds and 150yds. First try to sight in at 0.0" at 100yds, then measure the P.O.I. rise or fall at the other distances.

No experience with Pac Nor rimfire polygonal barrels. A couple of my buddies have shot a lot of H&K centerfires with polygonal rifling used in the HK93, HK53, etc. Very accurate.

I must be the outlier. I started out reloading for handguns only, so I load both pistol and rifle calibers on a Dillon 550B. I also have an old Herter's C-press for decrimp and NS only on rifle...

Early on when Lil'Gun first came out, I got huge swings in velocities and SD, so much so that I won't use it in bottle neck cartridges any more. I still use LG in 45 Colt and sometimes in 357...

I also learned to used a plastic bag the hard way. The other nice tool is to have is a magnetic pick-up tool and a strong flashlight or floodlight.

JDHAsty, very nice rifle. My 17 Rem looks like a H&R UltraWildcat, but is not one. It has the L461 repeater action, Fajen stock, and a 24in Shilen 1:10 barrel. It likes the 25gr HP better than the...

My 17 Rem likes H414/W760 also. Have tried W748, but W760 works better. I never tried the VV powders in it because they were always more expensive, even 10 years ago.

Pacific dies are the precursors to Hornady dies. Hornady bought out Pacific. My 30-30 dies are an old Pacific chrome set. Work great.

The 221FB is one of my favorite calibers also. Got a Cooper M21 Varminter back in 1998 and later picked up a CZ527 when they came out in 221FB in 2004.
