Just looked at the loading data on Hodgdon's site, yes indeed that looks like an interesting cartridge.

I have both. If you're talking occasional plinking, the HMR is fine. Any more than that, for serious shooting I'd go with the new .17 Hornet. My .17HH Savage, however is a bit rough around the edges and there have been reports of some feeding and tight bolt lift problems but not sure how widespread; C-Z's version is due out in early '13.

Ive owned both the savage and cz in 17 HMR and in fit, feel and finish the cz is head and shoulders above the savage..Id also give the accuracy edge to CZ as well. If your dead set on the 17hmr go the CZ route.

i think of my 17hmr as my rabbit rifle.
iv used the 20gr rounds on small deer and goats under 50 yards, and it worked fine.
