HE realy liked the calibre since he tried my Ruger 77/22h based 17A/H but he dont re-load so the 17HH was the answer to his dream gun he had taken 10 red fox and countles rabit and corvids in the short time he used it but he comented before it broke that its not a walkabout gun with its long heavy barrel and light stock and when you stick a moderator on the end it was a very ungainly gun and no good to balance on you knee on the tractor or quad.
At the moment he is using my 17A//H and loving it and is waiting for his smith to pick up a BSA 22 HOENET to re-barrel to 17HH with a shorter lighter barrel.
Also heard that a laminate stock had split on the thumbhole version.
Hope this helps
