Thanks for the comments and advice.

I forgot to add. CLEAN! These rifles prefer a clean barrel. If I'm load testing I clean it at the most, 20 rounds.
I'm going to take mine to the range tomorrow to play.

It's not always the easiest to load for since even a small variation can produce large swings in performance.
I really haven't done much with the rifle lately except shoot varmints from the back porch and I've been using factory ammo for that.
I'll look up in my notes what worked for me but if I had loads for H4198 and Lil Gun.
I also worked with neck sizing with a bushing die and bullet depth seating.
I plan on working up more loads this fall and playing around.
The last year I've dedicated most of my reloading to my 22 Nosler uppers. One for heavier bullets and one for lighter bullets.

Any advice or load data is welcome.

I see now that Federal is making ammunition for the 17 Hornet. Anyone tried this yet?

I have a CZ in .17 Hornet, it's been a lot of fun, and will shoot the 20gr. VMax factory ammo to about 3/4" on a regular basis. Handloads are a fuzz better. 25gr. HPs aren't quite there, but not too far off, either.
You'll have a lot of fun with it.

Hope to get out tmw and shoot it.
Glass bedded it
Free floated the barrel
Shimmed the bolt
Replaced sear and trigger spring with Volquartsen.
The Volquartsen kit reduced the pull from 5 plus pounds to 2.75 pounds and there’s little or no creep.

I just watched a you tube on how to add shims to the bolt. I believe it is a two piece.

|T.D.C.||keep an eye out for the 2 piece bolt. Sometimes you need to shim the bolt to improve headspace and thus accuracy. The newer models may not have a 2 piece bolt.|
