I am beginning to load for this rifle. Does anybody know if there is a funnel made which is small enough to use to direct the powder into the case? My reloading funnels are too large.

Loaded for one maybe forty years ago. Tiny powder funnels and tiny cleaning rods and jags and patches. It was a fun cartridge.

I have an RCBS in .17, which I use for .204R.

I have a .17 Remington in the model 700 Remington. Does anyone have any load data that shoots well. I have nosler 20 grain and hornady 25 grain v-max bullets to use in it.

Stan, been a long time since I loaded for one. Pretty sure I used IMR4198. I had Remington cases and used Remington 71/2 primers. Probably some easier metering and perhaps better powders now to obtain more velocity.

Treat that trigger like it’s your first date, not like you’ve been married to it for 20 years.

Thanks. I will look at those powders. I have read that this rifle is accurate up to 300 yards. With a 20 or 25 grain bullet I am beginning to wonder. At 100 yards my Remington seemed to spray the bullets around somewhat using factory loads. Shot tighter groups at fifty yards by far. Very little wind too. Am looking at 25 grains now.

Did you buy this rifle new? If used, you might consider copper fouling. Somework but it can be removed. The one I had shot five shots under a dime.

Ok.. I bought the rifle used. I will check it out. I cleaned it very well every ten shots.

Stan, might also check the trigger pull. I've adjusted all my Remington 700's. Throat could be shot out but my first place to look would be copper fouling. Might check and see if there is data for loading the 17 with CFE223. It will limit copper fouling and some say even remove some. It has worked good for me in 223.

The trigger is currently being adjusted. I would like it around three pounds. I'd bet it is around five or six now!

That's too heavy for most precision shooting people. It may be a good indication that the previous owner didn't shoot enough to wear anything out. Most prairie dog shooters would have adjusted the trigger or replaced it.

I usually shoot the model 70 Winchester. I will adjust that trigger to 2 1/4 lbs because of the safety mechanism. I was not sure if I could take the Remington trigger that low. Your thoughts?
