Hi, new member to the site, and would like to solicit some opinion on the Volquartsen .17HMR. I am looking specifically at the fluted & compensated models (both the "snake" and regular fluted models). I would love to hear from anyone on the following: 1) Overall feedback on the Volquartsen. 2) I am considering the Burris Fullfield 2, 4.5-14x42 A/O with the Zee Signature medium rings. I am looking at the mildot and ballistic plex reticles. I'd like to hear from anyone with experience with these as I will be sending the scope to Burris for the reticle and would like to get it right the first time given the additional cost. 3) Anyone used the Boyds, Ross model, thumbhole stock and opinion. 4) Favorite ammo and why. I will be shooting ground squirrels, paper, plinking and maybe some coyotes. Thanks in advance. Great site, tons of excellent information from you fellow members. I recently retired and plan on getting a lot of enjoyment from this gun and want to make the right choices on it the first go.
