I have shot one for a few years, I really like the rifle. I free floated the barrel and put a Jard trigger in it and it will shoot one inch at 100 yards. Have shot hundreds of chucks and a few coyotes with it out to 250 yards. It’s my favorite gun to throw in the truck.Anyone have any real world experience with the 17wsm in a ruger 77?
Well I finally got around to shooting a few rounds and it’s ok (hunting type accuracy). I definitely need to free float the barrel. It’s a walnut stock, I’d like to find a inexpensive plastic or composite stock for it. Il find a little more time and warmer day to play with it to see what it will really do.
Im with ya on the 17. I had a 17-222 and it was great. I was young and hot rodded it to the point it throated the barrel about 2” -3”. Went to 222 mag AI. I too like the idea of the 17 wsm . We will see how long it stays in the stableI was intrigued with a 17 WSM when they came out but ammunition was hard to find as it appears to still be. I have a Remington rifle in 17 Remington and an encore pistol in the same caliber. Just can't beat either one and I just keep reloading 25 grain pills Molly coated. Coyotes just love to be shot with them. Luckily I bought all my components before this crazy upswing in prices.
