    Varmint Al had adrop chart on his website comparing 17 HMR 17 gr. V-Max, 17HMR 20 gr. XTP, 17 HM2 17 gr. V-Max, and 22 LR 40 gr RN. Really is a nice drop chart from 0 to 300 yards in 25 yard increments. Also has the bullet drops charted on a graph. I tried to post it here but had some problems in doing so. If you would like a copy let me know and I will email to you.

    The charts at Varmint Al's website are great, as a starting point. In my own experience, with my rifle.....it didn't shoot anywhere near those charts no matter what loads I was shooting.

    With my scope dead on at 100 with the v-max bullets, the 20 gr HP Gamepoints shot 1" to the left and 3" low.

    My rifle would not shoot the CCI's very well either. I was referring to Varmint Al's drop chart comparing Hornady 17 grainers to Hornady 20 grainers. My results were fairly consistent to his. I have good friend and his rifle had a preference for the Hornady ammo also.
