    .17 WSM (prefer Ruger 77)

    Had my fun with my 17HMR out to 200, but after caving and finally buying a range finder after all these years I'm looking for a little more oomph and range, without the cost of buying factory varmint ammo in 223/22-250/243/204 etc since I won't be reloading.

    Are there any Ruger 77/17s out there? Would prefer a walnut/stainless one, but anything is considered really aside from the cheapo BMAG.

    He's after a WSM, not a HMR

    Gunsnz will be bringing in the Jard semi auto (looks like a upscaled 10/22).

    Accuracy and reliability is still unknown at present.

    Also suggest it will cost more than a ruger as well.
    They aren't cheap in the US so they deffo wont be here.

    At nearly $3000 they're about $1000 over the price I would expect too

    The AR pattern version would make for a neat bunny rig though, albeit a bit chunky when I throw an optic and bipod on it, though being a small manufacturer I imagine suppressing it might cause issues perhaps.

    the franklin arms ones would need someones kidney for.
    Volquartsen are dear enough but still way cheaper than the Ar platform types.

    would it happen to be the thumbhole/stainless target version? because the online group think seems to say that's the only version that shoots well.

    Definitely not the thumb hole one as he is a lefty.
    I think it's heavy barrel and stainless.
    I can find out if you are keen to learn more.
    Not sure if it's even for sale but a total safe queen.

    @Macca Jard claims that they work fine suppressed, just gets dirtier.
