The rifle was rebarrelled to 19 Badger by James Calhoon

How will I know how to load it without any published data?
I will have to make up my own with the help of Quickload.

The first one I shoot will have 8 gr Blue Dot 32 gr JHP.

I will probably work up to 12 gr Blue Dot, 15.5 gr H110, 16.6 gr Re7, and 15 gr 5744.

That looks like an interesting one. I like anything that shoots a projectile more than 3,500fps.

It looks like this, between a 17HMR and a .223

I would start with 221 Fireball data and powder types. Did Calhoun not give you data? I would call them for suggestions.
