Default 17 cal Dogtown pills

I use them in my Cooper M38 17AH on PDís, work good for me. You canít expect much of airtime on PD. I havenít tried them on squirrels yet. Wasnít able to get 20 vMax to group well. At this price point, you canít beat the Dogtown HP. Iíll be getting more of them.

I used them up til now and I had to go to lead free, for all hunting/varmints, but they shot very well for me, accurate and did a number on various critters, when hit. Shot them in a 17 VHA and 17 Fireball. Bill K

Yes I have with both CFE BLK and AA1680 and IMR 4227. All near the max loads shown in Hornady's load data and they are as accurate or more so than the lead bullets I used prior. So this lead issue is not a issue, as far as I am concerned. This applies to both the 17 Hornet and 17 Fireball.
And in my 20 cal. that Nosler Varmageddon lead free are also working as well or better. Bill K
