.17 winchester super magnum
« on: February 16, 2013, 07:39:40 AM »

Back in "the day" when Rem. came out with the 5mm rimfire I thought it was a cool cartridge and wanted to get one.  I remember talking to a trapper who figured it was a big improvement over a .22 rim fire or a .22 mag.  It was his idea of a perfect beaver cartridge.

The .17 HMR never really got me too excited though I have talked to some who were really impressed by it.

The .17 hornet got my attention as is is reloadable.

I just watched a review on the new .17 winchester super mag. and the Savage rifle they have built for it.  I just may have to get one.

If you google "17 win. super mag."    Or "Savage B mag" you will probably find heaps of info.

Do it Duffy

I have shot hundreds of rounds through a .17 Rem centerfire. The giggle factor is huge.

I have been in contact with a gun store and the Savage B.MAG rifle is supposed to be in their store June or July.

If I don't pick up a .222, .223 or 218 B before then I just may get one.
