    WTB: Eley .17 Mach 2 ammo

    Just picked a cheap Savage .17 M2 in mint condition & looking for Eley ammo. If you have a few packets & want to sell just send me a PM.

    Thanks
    Will

    Don't have any Eley, but if you're in the Dunedin area I have a box of CCI that you can have for free

    Good news - I have a few packets
    Bad news - I want to sell it with my Savage HM2

    But I grabbed mine at FieldDays a dew years ago - there's another one coming up in June.

    Be grounds to take your rifle back to point of sale for full refund wouldnt it?
    after all things have to be fit for purpose and generally speaking a rifles purpose is to shoot stuff and you can't do that without ammo.

    Im sure you can find anything you need for centerfire(but maybe not what you want)
    but as far as Im aware you can't reload rimfire so if they choose to stop importing it they have turned your rifle into a tomato stake.

    too rite, i cant see the problem, its a great little cartridge, only 300fps behind the hmr. quiet, whacks stuff good.
    i ordered a whole case but dunno if i can get it????
    the firearms importers are not the ammo importers tho, it would be like asking toyota to give a refund coz Z wont sell dzl anymore...............

    Have been told that Hornady .17M2 ammo is backordered until April at the earliest. So, hopefully I can get a couple of bricks around then if that's correct.

    Haha, yes!
    Have found a shop which has only has one box left.. I've e-mailed the main gun stores and all of them told me they have not got any nor are going to get any in the near future.
