Well what is the thought on the new round by Hornady? I would think it will not or could not replace the 17 Remington, but I guess we will just see. Bill K
What's the difference between the Hornady round and a .17 Ackley Hornet, which has been around since the early 1950s according to Cartridges of the World? I suppose there's no difference between Hornady "stealing" this round and putting their name on it as it is for Remington to "steal" the .17 Mach IV and put their name on it. Make a few insignificant changes in order to call it their own and see how much money can be made off it. Of course the one nice thing about it is that you'll be able to buy ready made ammo, or, if you reload, will be able to get ready-to-go brass and not have to go through the resizing hassle.
Say your prayers varmint!
"Good heavens! He disintegwated."
I have a lot of different rifles, I guess I like them all. I use Nikon scopes too, the 6x18 buckmaster has proven to be a good one for me, also the monarch 6.5x20. Dale.
Email today from SSK Industries says my barrel was sent out Tuesday.. So it should be along. Now I just need the dies and shell holder to arrive and I can finish prepping my brass. load and fireform and start working up a load and sighting in.. Look out varmints, this and my 20's are just waiting for the little varmints to start popping out. Bill K

"Liberalism", Ideas so good they have to be mandatory.
That's a nice feature on a rifle. The ability to take, and field dress with one shot.

Show up, do your best, don't grumble about the outcome...
146yds. with 17 Hornet.
Wow, that is some beautiful country. Great pics! Nice shootin, keep em comin.
What are all those tracks?
Kevin, the tracks are jackrabbits, there are thousands of them around this is the start of the cycle again. They get thicker and thicker for about 9 years then are sort of hard to find for about 3 years, well this is the 4th year after a low so they are getting thick again.
Last year was a pretty good year for rabbits, just about anywhere in the sage... Like you show, in the snow, sand and grass, trails everywhere.. They also were reproduceing later into the summer.. You can not tell which one's have young.. Hope this do's not offend, but the photo shows fetus.. Bill K
Got 3 today 100,138,142yds. With the 17 Hornet.
