    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.

    I likes Wildcats!

    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.
