So, my father pointed me to another excuse to spend money I ought be saving for something, and I thought I’d ask around before I have to explain another firearms purchase to Intaglio.
He pointed me to the Savage Arms 93R17, a sweet-looking rifle with a fairly modest price tag, chambered for the .17HMR. I looked around a bit, and found this: 30R17. Sweeet rifle! But should I bother?
Has anyone here fired a rifle chambered for the .17 HMR? This is a tiny little round, about 4.3mm, but the numbers on the ammunition sites are pretty respectable. Anyone know anything about this round?
Is it worth my trouble to follow up, or should I toss this on the heap with all the other ‘great ideas’ that don’t go anywhere?
Another rifle I might try, in the same caliber: Remington 597
