Who's buying one?I was a little intrigued when I heard about this little cartridge but can't bring myself to buy an ugly savage model 25.I had a hornet in the ruger 77 and could never get that gun to shoot anything so their offering really doesn't excite me.A couple days ago I heard CZ is offering it in their model 527.Without a doubt I'll be picking one up as soon as I can find one.I don't expect it to do anything magical but it's neat enough that I have to have one.I missed out when remington was chambering the .17 in the model seven.

I bought a Savage Model 25 .17 hornet a couple weeks ago ... I haven't had a change to play around with it yet. Should be a fun caliber and fantastic for fox ... I know some guys in Canada were dropping coyotes with the new .17 hornet, but I'm not sure about it being a coyote caliber.

The model 25 in the synthetic doesn't look too bad. I am looking for a laminate wood version of the model 25 in .204 ruger also
