thats weird their is only two manufactures of 17 hmr now. Hornady and speer. The bullet selection is getting better with both producing 20 grainers now.

There is only one manufacturer of 17 HMR ammo and that's CCI. It is rumored and ONLY rumored that the new Winchester ammo is made by Winchester. Hornady, Speer and CCI are making bullets for it. We don't need any more bullet choices because Hornady got it right the first time.

Len,welcome to the "Hummer" world! I also have the VQ 17HMR in the standard model. Wait till you try it on a family of Praire Dogs all sitting on one mound. They are all dead before they know what him them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: My Latest Long Range Outfit

Len, that's quite a testimonial that the Bushnell 4200 6-24 can see 17 holes at 100 yds! What recticle do you have and if it is the Mildot how do you like it? Mine has the Bushnell 3200 5-15X50. After just returning for SD prairie dog hunting and using a dot on my "dog" gun I am thinking of putting a dot or mildot on my VQ.

Looks like the dogs are now ready to shoot back. One to aim and one to pull the trigger.
