    10/22 WMR

    Hi guys,

    I am keen on 10/22 .22 Magnum rifle if anyone finds one. They are discontinued. Not worried about the barrel condition. I am just interested in the action, magazine and stock.

    don't make it an 17HMR. They are really problematic. A lot of info on the web suggests there are issues which are a H&S risk for semi autos

    There was a review a while back in a mag(sorry cant remember which) of a (sorry cant remember which )17hmr semi that had apparently overcome the sharp peak pressure rise problem with 17hmr semis by use of a small port a few inches forward of the chamber.
    From memory I think it dropped the muzzle velocity 80=100FPS.
    Il have a look see if I can find that mag.

    Forum member "the kid" used to have a Marlin semi 17M2 that would rupture cases on occasion from the pressure. Made a nice pop.

    I have used one that hums and has no pressure problems. The bloke that built it will build one for me if I can find a donor rifle.

    I believe that there was a review on such a 17hmr in NZ guns n hunting, I'm pretty sure its a volquartsen or magnum research
