Well now, that is downright embarrassing if you are Winchester. Wonder if that was one of their money saving ideas, reduce powder expenses? Thanks for the heads up. Had not seen that before you posted it.

Thanks for posting. Been a while since I looked at my .17 HMR. Will have to take stock when I get home.
