    17Hornet

    I'm not sure where to post this ... so I'll try here.

    In the electronic edition of Rifle magazine, Terry Wieland has reported on Hornady's legitimisation of the 17AckleyHornet and its field testing in a pair of Savage rifles.

    Any thoughts what they may have been?
    Cheers...

    I'm going to guess that one of them was probably a model 25, or maybe both of them were. No need to chamber it in one of the larger and heavier model 12's. I guess we will see on Nov. 2nd when Savage unveils their 2012 products on their Facebook page.

    Looks like it is advertized in 2012, the model 25, along with a couple other new calibers.

    Not really a new cartrdige - just a legitimization of the old wildcat. It is center fire. Here is a link to Hornady's page:

    The 17 Hornet will be available in select Model 25's for 2012.
    I've come to believe that everyone should have to pass a simple common sense and I.Q. test before they're allowed to own a gun.

    Awesome! I had a 17 Hornet built on a Contender years ago, still kicking myself for getting rid of it. Such a sweet shooting cartridge and easy on powder. Conserve resources, shoot a 17.

    I'd probably buy one of these....even though I currently have a "converted" Stevens in a 17 Fireball. It would free up the Stevens action.....for something else!!! ;D

    I talked to customer service at savage today about the 17 hornet they said it will be available in the model 25. Also the model 25 is going to have a barrel nut now. I could not get any other specifics from the lady I talked to. I think that is some great news!

    Savage already has the 17 Hornet in the M-25 listed on their web site. http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/models/ Just click the Lightweight Varmiter Series and anyone of the 3 listed are in the 17 Hornet. Just pick what you want.

    I clicked the link, but the rifles are not yet shipped out. But when they are...yeah...for sure there will be one in my safe!!!

    Re: 17Hornet

    So......as my Grandmother use to say to me....."What's the matter with you Boy??...You got ant's in your pants???" Do we have any idea when Savage will actually ship these Model 25's in the 17-Hornet caliber? 'Cause I am simply itchin to get my grubby little paws on one....and shoot it....and reload the cartridge ....and shoot it again, and again, and again.

    Oh....and buy a scope for it.....'n stuff. 'n stuff. 'n stuff.


    Anyone know? Huh? Huh? Huh?

    How about now?

    Now?

    Maybe Now?
