From memory he used one of these radar style chronograph so. He used to do some pro-shooting on the side and is not one to be 'all wet'. I'll see if I can find the article.

The is also a fella here in Aus who posted photos of blue beta chrony readings up around 4,900fps from a 17ppc

Here is my load data using a 17grain:

This still manages to flatten primers, so I do not recommend trying to reach this velocity using any powder combination imaginable in a 17 HH..


17fb 26" REM 700 SPS H4198
CASE FULL TO BOTTOM OF NECK 19.5+ GRAINS OF POWDER IN A FORMED CASE
CCI BR4
17gr GSC SP solid



Here is a similar load using a 19grain GSC solid in the 17Rem FB. 19gr bullet and 19 gr H4198. Again this tends to be hot, don't start at 19 GRAINS OF POWDER.
