    Nope 17 AH & 20 AH are out there as well and possibly a few others like the 270 Ren & 6mm Hornet.
    It is quite surprising the number of wildcats out there in NZ, I know of a 17 Ackley Bee and a 17 Hebee

    You shouldn't be looking at changing the Browning 22 Hornet, just get another rifle and rebarrel it to 20 Hornet

    I have a Remington 581 that could actually make a nice 17 or 20 Mink, I've seen the 581 chambered in Hornet and even in 17Mach IV (not sure I'd go that large a case on that action. It would be nice if it could be done with a useable magazine.

    These 2 were stupid enough to land in the paddock while I has loading some 17's. 2 very different wounds I'm thinking the "intact" Plover is a result of clipping the grass prior to impact?? 3550fps at 50m would normally equal big mess.

    The 17 hornet is here, and ready to head to the range

    Small mishap with the scope that was supposed to go on it, so the supplied scope will stay until the warranty replacement goes through.

    Yep, roll my own is the longer term goal. Reload for my other rifles, so the outlay for dies, pills, and powder isn't going to break the bank.
    More of a fault than a misshap with the scope. Reticle canted slightly when using the magnification ring. Cheaper scope with good glass, and features, and would have ticked the box. Only noticed after removing it from the PCP, and putting it on the CZ.

    Finally got to use the 17 Hornet in anger.
    Alarmingly efficient on Pukeko,

    And to preempt anyone thinking this is illegal, I have a permit from Fish & Game to take them with a 17 Cal centrefire.

    Still haven't got my scope back, so mounted a 8-32x56 Sightron off a range run. TBH, I really like it, so it will probably stay on the 17 Hornet.
    Also got my hands on a second hand composite stock - the one with a rubber coating like a hogue. This had to be one of the most flimsy stocks I have ever encountered!
    I made up front and rear pillars, inset a steel block for the Picatinny rail to attach to, poured in stock stabiliser, and bedded the action. Glad I did not have to pay labor for this!
    Long story short, it's now a rigid stock, which should do the job just perfectly. And I won't care if I scratch it up or ever need to touch up the woodwork.
