Default Hi mate

PM me I have a page out of an Australian Reloading Manual and it has a few powders that would be available in the US. Published 2005 if that would help.

Thank you for the 17-222 Load Data! I compared Nick Harvey's load data against Hodgdon's Load Date and in most case they are the same or very similar for each powder.

Default .1-222 load data

Hi there,
Just thought I would share my load data.
I have a Sako L461 early model, 5 digit s/n. Meopta 4-12x50 Scope, very good optic, older model made in Czech. Current are made in China...I think?
Shilen 1:10 twist barrel, I only use 25gn HP projectiles, Hornady and/or Berger...
For some reason!? The Berger always shoot tighter groups. This was also the case when I used to have a .17 AH.

.17/222 Data.....

N133. 18.7gns. 3800fps
R7. 17.5. 3800fps+-
AR2207. 16.9. ?
AR2206H. 20.3. ?

The N133 is no longer? Available in Australia and the R7 is difficult to get in the Southern States due to transport safety/political States issues, as the importer is in Queensland.
Great calibre to load for and shoot, 3/8 to 1/2 groups, I use RP and Winchester brass, but hope to get either Sako or Norma/Nosler brass soon.
Anyone got a preference for brass brand??

Regards, Jay

OK, here are some more Aussie loads. All with Lapua .222 cases necked down and neck turned, and Rem 7 1/2 SRBR primers.

21.4gn ADI BM1 with 20gn Nosler shots FBHP 4180 fps ave.
21.8gn ADI BM2 (Benchmark in the US?) with 20gn Hornady vmax 4020 fps ave.
21.4gn ADI BM2 with 25gn Hornady FBHP 3900 fps ave.

When I first had this rifle put together I didn't have much in the way of data to rely on so did a lot of testing with a variety of ADI powders and achieved some surprising velocities (4200-4300 fps with 20gn vmaxes) with terrific accuracy, but for longevity I've toned it down a bit.

yesterday I ran 3 different loads over the chronograph, all using VV 140, with 25 gr Vmax. The barrel is a 9 twist 26 inch Lilja on Remington 700 action by Gre-Tan Rifles. All FPS shown are averaged.

22.2 gr 3911

22.4 gr 3990

22.6 gr 4053

There is still room in the case and there were NO signs of high pressure. I believe I could run it at 4100fps if I wanted but don't need it.
