Anyone have some good data for loads for the 17s?

Picking up my 17s in about a week or so and I'm getting ready to spin up some loads for it. From what I read, some people are having decent groups with:
- 178gr Hornady HPBTM A-max
- 42.5 RL-15
- Lapua brass
- Federal GM210M
- 2.820 oal
- light taper crimp

Re: Leupold LR/T 3.5-10x 40 FDE for a SCAR?

Ok a few updates on this issue. A nice fellow bought my 5.7 off this forum and the $$ is in hand. I just got off the horn with A&A Arsenal and he got his hands on a FDE 17s. I'm going over to see Charles & pay for it this weekend and have him send off the pistol FFL to FFL. Charles is the man! Doh, ...

Re: My 6mmPPC 262NK BR rifle

What is the scope in the second to last pic? Doesn't look like the Leupy. Don't laugh... It's a Hawke Tac 30 6,5-20x42mm Here's a review that I wrote on it. http://www.predatormastersforums.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=2267182#Post2267182" onclick="window.open(this.href);return fal...

Re: My 6mmPPC BR rifle

I wound up purchasing a Harrell's arbor press. So far, it seems to fit the bill. http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u29/DeathWraith07/09%20Hunting/Guns/IMG_0713.jpg I had quite a few problems getting my arms around the Redding Type S dies that take the different neck washers.

My 6mmPPC 262NK BR rifle

This post is for flyingirish04 as promised... This is my first and last bench rest rifle I built with lots of help from some friends. What started me on this venue is my good friend had a terrible accident and is paralyzed from the waste down now. We built a shooting table that's hooked up to a trai...

Re: Forum Match #3 - The Quick and the Dead (pistol only)

I was thinking about trying my hand on this. Do we mail the targets in? Video it and YouTube for verification. Apologies for the n00b questions, I've never competed in anything since NRA class 45 years ago. :ponder:

Re: Leupold LR/T 3.5-10x 40 FDE for a SCAR?

Most efficient round out there. 6PPC is the only 100 and 200 yard bench choice. Ever shoot any dasher? Love that round. What action is that btw? March scope? I'll post a my build thread on that rifle in the rifle section. A BR rifle was very low on my list and there's a story why I got into it. Hop...

Re: Leupold LR/T 3.5-10x 40 FDE for a SCAR?

Ok, I have to think about how to respond to this recent flurry of replies... flyingirish04 - Point taken on too much magnification. Point taken that over a $500 scope is a waste of $$. Point taken as well that this is a 'battle rifle' and a complete waste of $$ again for my intended purpose. I get i...

As far as hunting goes, there is a thread for that here, and some will appreciate videos/information. Actually, an entire sub-forum . Esteves, I understand there's a specified hunting/fishing section in this forum but it's tough 'for me' to put that much energy into a review with pictures and decen...

Most scopes will look great during the day. Take those same 2 scopes out around dusk, the difference is huge.

I have to agree with this statement.

Re: Leupold LR/T 3.5-10x 40 FDE for a SCAR?

blueorison - If I got with a NF, which reticle would you suggest? Also, what are my options to color the scope tan without voiding the warranty? I suppose some tan tape might be a viable option. If I've read correctly on the 17s, that it's tough to get MOA out of the box. Now the reviews that I've r...
