Found some 17 WSM ammo in PA......

Was at a gun show in PA yesterday and this guy had several boxes of 17 WSM ammo there at $20/box. Winchester 20 and 25 grain.

He may be interested in shipping if anybody's interested. Thought I'd pass it along as some were having trouble finding ammo. I never met him before, nor do I need it myself.

In stock online on their website. $16 a box.

Re: Found some 17 WSM ammo in PA......

I'm excited about this caliber for fox. it made my day to see the Hornady, Federal, and now American Eagle are all mfg the 17 WSM ammo.. I do get my 17 WSMRF ammo at walmart cheap. it goes fast but they have the best price.. I think it was in the $14.00 + dollar range for either or the 20 grain or 25 grain...I remember way back when a gun shop in Gettysburg was selling it for $28.00 a box.. they had plenty of it of course but were making a killing on poor souls playing on their emotions...

I think many are expecting too much out of a rimfire, accuracy wise.

5 shot group @ 100yrd out of a rifle I bought used and was told by the previous owner that it was garbage. For a rimfire cartridge and a poorly made gun, I am content with it. I consider it a disposable rifle.

I wouldn't lump all rimfire cartridges together when it comes to accuracy or lack thereof.

Walmart in Hermitage, Pa had about 12 boxes on the shelf about three hours ago. They probably still have 12 boxes on their shelves right now. Right around 17 bucks each. Doc in Pa.
