Iím going to sand the opening to about even and test them again. Frankly, at 1:9 twist itís spinning rapidly, and at 3500-3600 fps, I just would not think it would make very much difference. As it...

Hollow point tips

Hollow point openings at bullet tipó 17 HH 20 gr specifically in my caseó if the opening is not square to bullet/bore axis does it affect consistency/accuracy? In other word, canted. Not the bullet...

I also have the Performance Center TCR22, with Altamont wood stock, and I agree that it is not a match target rifle that your CZ 457 could be. BUT, it should do better than 1/2 inch at 25 yards. I...

Small caliber reloading

I am considering a reloading setup for 17 Hornet, and am wondering about presses. Because itís a small case, is it easier to resize than a bigger case, say a 243? In other words, less force required...

I might also suggest CCI’s segmented line, probably subsonic at 1050 fps to cycle your 10/22 action. The quiets at 710 fps may not work. However, I would be surprised if they would be as accurate as...
