17 Hornet

Anyone have one yet? If so, please post your results. I only know of one maker so chambering it's rifles and that's Savage. Is anyone else making rifles in 17 hornet?

They won't be released until sometime in 2012.

Re: 17 Hornet

I have Oregon Kimbers in the .17 Ackley and .17 K Hornets...both are great, accurate little cartridges and really stretch a pound of powder out....

Re: 17 Hornet

The Hornady 17 will be a very intersting cartridge IMO. I was just getting ready to buy a new 22 Hornet, but decided to hold off and see what happens with the new Hornady 17.

I know some guys shooting the 17AH and they really like it. I almost bought one, but the cost of dies and such held me back.

Now Hornady should be supplying those components.

Only problem I see so far is the first rifle is the Savage Model 25. And I just can't see myself buying one of those rifles. If for no other reason that it is just purely UGLY!!

They did make a major change in the Model 25. They no longer use a pinned barrel, they went to their lock ring style barrel for the new Model 25, which is a great improvement. I just don't like those open style extra long actions.

Hopefully Ruger will get on the stick. I know Ruger is bringing out their smaller action in a lefty this year. Man a lefty Hornady 17 would probably be to much to ask for??

I am hoping they consider the Hornady 17 in the Ruger #1. Now that would be a real dandy. Tom.

Re: 17 Hornet

Problem with a ruger 77/22 action is the 2 piece bolt.

Lots of talk on the internet about how to improve them, but I agree with you on the model 25.

I shot one in 223. It shot groups a little larger than 1 inch. I hated the trigger.

The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.

Re: 17 Hornet

Yeah, I'm with you guys in that I think the Savage 25 is butt ugly! Also, it's not an appropriatly sized action, but the only folks making those are Cooper Firearms with their model 38. But they cost 5 times the Savage!
