Re: .17 cal remington centerfire
I don't know how I missed this thread last month.
If you've heard all of the rumors about fouling and wind problems with the 17, well the people who repeat those rumors just have no experience with the round. Fouling problems are barrel specific, they have nothing to do with the caliber. Use a good barrel and clean it like any other rifle.
It's true the little .17 pills have a low BC, but they get to the target so fast, the wind doesn't get much of a chance to move them.
Chris, Are you talking about Corbin Shell? I had my 17 Remington built with his reamer. My intentions are to one day put a better scope on it and shoot it at 1,000. Until then, it remains my favorite calling rifle. Just squeeze the trigger and watch the bullet hit the target. It's an amazing little round! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
