I sent you a PM with this information, that I doubt that you received, so I will send it this way.
1. Saunders claimed he got better accuracy with Remington bullets
A. we found that v-max and ballistic tip bullets shot much better, but the Remington's(25 grain HP's)
were much cheaper and shot almost as well. ( At the time we were buying Remington .17 bullets for about 68.00 per thousand)
Shortly after 2000 Remington quit making their own .17 bullets(they said their swaging machine wore out) Remington then started buying their bullets from Hornady and quit selling .17 bullets as components, they are not a, v-max Hornady or ballistic tip bullet. So we quit Remington.
2. Sanders said he had no luck with 4198 powder. This is the most accurate .17 powder that Me and my brother-in-law ever used.
He said his .17 built on a Martini action in .17 Bee started showing pressure signs early. My 5MM Remington action must be stronger than I thought, with heavier loads in my improved Mashburn Bee I have not had pressure problems.(In other words it hasn't blown up yet)
In the years he started experimenting with these little boogers, barrels were still mostly cut-rifled barrels and fouling was a problem. The rifle that he described that had the Myrtle Wood stock and sold, I talked to the man who bought that rifle for his wife and said that two or three shots and it was fouled.
He was one of the founders of .17 wildcats and shared a lot of information with me that greatly speed up my .17 caliber knowledge process .I have a lot more that I would like to share with you but I'm very tired of typing.
