    A Weihrauch in 17hmr

    I have had a soft spot for the hmr for many years, aside from all the debates about .22lr being cheaper and a .223 leaving it the dust etc... it will always have a place in my safe. Not long after it hit the shores I bought a an anschutz 1517. very nice little gun but it was a bit of a problem child in its early years.

    With some trigger work and a bedding job it grew up quickly and shot very well accounting for many pests over the following 7-8 years. But it was a small and very light little rifle and I often found myself wishing it had a little more heft.
    Enter the full sized Weihrauch HW60 seen also as a Krico. I had a Weihrauch in .22 hornet a few years ago and it was a brilliant rifle although the caliber didn't appeal to me at all so I sold it to a good mate on a no life style block. So when i saw an Hw60 in the local shop for $1300( comes with a spare 4 shot mag as well) gun boredom took over and a deal with the anschutz was done.

    The first few trips to the range where average while I fed it some hornady and cci vmax , most groups hovering around moa.The hornady was better putting 3 in a tight cluster but always throwing one out of 4. After a bit of settling down and some cci 17gr tnt things came right. The wind was an issue but as it dropped off the groups tightned up nicley finising with a nice little sub .5 moa. 4 shot

    The 20gr cci where almost as good and shot to the same point at 50m and an inch low at 100. A slight lull in the wind gave a chance for a couple of quick 3 shot groups at 100yds to confirm zero that went .7 and better. Over all a swap I'm pretty happy with.

    iv got a savage 17hmr it too shot well with 20 grain or 17 grain tnt. recently accuracy has dropped off. so iv polished the bore to see if that helps. im yet to shoot it again. in the past it did seem to like to shoot dirty.
    I think of it as my rabbit gun. with a 100 yard zero, its ideal. but I still use a .22 rimfire for night work. closer ranges and the stingers seem to stop possums better. altho the vmax .17 may be ok for possums, but I don't use them much.

    A little boost for the HMR coming from the introduction of winchesters new wsm rimfire. Apparently they are keeping the ammo production in house at winchester so cci are reducing the cost of hmr accross the board to compete. I just bought a brick of cci tnt for $200 and talk is may get cheaper.

    I have plan for a 6.5 but it wont be for a while. If I spend to much I have to work a bit harder and that won't be for a while either
