.17 HMR

I recently saw a .17 HMR wheelgun. I believe that it was one of the Taurus Tracker models.

Has anyone tested one of these little guys out yet.

What kind of ballistics can I expect out of a 6.5 inch barrel?

I use my .22 WMR wheelgun for fun and inexpensive target shooting so I thouhgt that this may be another nice toy to have :-D

17 hmr tracker

I almost traded in my 22lr tracker for a 17 hmr tracker.

Could not come up with a good use for this gun! It will not be nearly as accurate as a rifle or encore/contender. Ammo is $9.00 for 50 if you shop around. Compare to .89 for 50 22lr it is not a wise swap.

I nearly did it anyway. Does sound like a lot of fun. Maybe they will rent it for a weekend?

If you get this gun post your opinion of it.

Good luck.

Definitly post your results.

I will probably have to wait for the 17. Just bought a Ruger super red hawk in 44 mag, will need to get set for reloading and work up a few loads before I consider the 17 taurus.

**** luck!
