When I had my 700 BDL in 17 Rem (in the 70's) I learned that I had to keep the bore very clean or the bullets would not make it to the target before disintegrating. I would find tiny cuts from the pieces of jacket and a gray mist from the lead on a 100 yard target if I let it get fouled. Get a good 17 caliber cleaning rod and some JB Bore Cleaning paste and you will be fine.
