Hope to get out tmw and shoot it.
I’ve-
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've pretty much done the same to my 77/17 and can get sub 1/2 MOA with 20gr reloads and factory 15.5 NTX.
I see now that Federal is making ammunition for the 17 Hornet. Anyone tried this yet?

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.
