Got a .17 HRM today.

Discussion in 'Reloading, Target Shooting, and Firearms' started by Buckrun, Dec 28, 2002.

  1. Well I finally got a .17 HMR. It is a Savage 93R17 it has a black stock and heavy barrel. I have a Leupold 4x12x40 AO to put on it but need rings. I’ll have to order some Monday. I have been trying to do a trigger job but can only get it to a creepy 4 lb. Is there a good after market trigger I could get? Id like to get it to a crisp 3 lb.

  2. Congratulations on the new toy, I have considered one myself, I have really thought about a Ruger 77, I have heard they are produceing or will be soon a HB like the VHZ they have out now, but I havent seen one or heard about prices, sounds like you got a pretty sweet rifle going with the 4X12 Leupold, let us know how it shoots.

    I have a CZ 452 in 17 HMR and I really like it . It shoots pretty good too .

    Thats a nice looking rifle, how much are they running? I have been hearing all kinds of GOOD things about the CZ rifles, do they have a website where I can look at all the different models?
  6. Smallie34 -- I'm sure the link you are lookin for is on this page.

    BrianM -- Good lookin rifle, and it shoot good.

    I would guess that the ground hogs in your area are in for a world of hurt. :)

    That is a beauty. I just can't swing the price of one of those right now. I feel kind of odd putting a scope on it that was almost twice the price of the rifle.

    Thanks for the link I will check it out.
  9. Buckrun, Your gun will only shoot as good as you can aim it and cheap scopes don`t always aim at the same place twice.:D Sounds to me like your giveing it a good chance to really show it`s potential.
  10. They always say dont skimp on optics, get the best you can afford.

    What model is your 452? I went to the CZ website and looked through the 452s and only seen 22LR and 22WMR? maybe there website isnt updated enough to show those yet?
  12. Smallie34 , I can't find it on their website either . But I have one . I have been told that they are going to make a couple of different models in 17 HMR . Mine is a CZ 452 American .I also have it's twin in 22 mag and hope to soon get one in 22 lr . I really like the CZ's , I have a 527 in 22 Hornet too .(which is now a K-Hornet)
  13. Brian how much are the 17HMRs and 22Hornets running now?
  14. The 17 HMR was $369 . I don't remember exactly how much the 527 was , I've had it for a while . It is the Lux model . I got it before they came out with the "American" (I wish I would have waited ! I like the American models a lot more) I think the cost was around $425 if I remember right .

    Thanks I might be looking into one in the next month or so.
  16. Smallie34 , If you have any trouble finding one , let me know . I'll see if I can help you locate one .

    I havent made any calls yet, they list a shop that I have been to alot as a dealer of theres(on there website) a hornet would be nice to...but I already have 2 so the 17HMR makes more sense, I will go back and forth a million times before I finally buy something.
