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.
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!
