17 Hornet


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I just saw a Hornady ad for the new 17 Hornet. Does anybody know who will be chambering the first rifles for this. I assume Ruger will since they already had the 77/22 Hornet

I've tried to ignore the .17 Hornet introduction.

Bullets are expensive, and prone to wind drift. Brass is fragile. The last thing I need is ANOTHER caliber on the bench.

I'll probably own a 77/17 the day it comes out

I know what you mean. There are a lot better options out there, but it just seems NEAT. I pretty much avoided the hoopla with the 17 HMR, but this intrigues me.

Same here, i've never really looked at the 17HMR or the 17 Mach 2 but this has caught my eye. 1100 feet per second faster than the 17 HMR. The Savage rifle with this chambering is on their website and it's a good looking gun, then again so are about 20 others they have, LOL.

A .17 Hornet is gonna sell.

A couple decent rifles, and it will almost certainly take off, and there is really no great reason to have one.

Just one of those things. Like a .243 in a world of .250 Savage/.257 Roberts rifles. ??

Will I have one? Unless I die

Cute, but I will get a 17 Remington first. Why not go for the faster one and then download instead of working with a rimmed case?
