    17 hmr replacement

    Hi Guys ,

    Just got to shoot me 22 Hornet , its a CZ527 , and it had the barrel chopped from the std 22 down to 20 inches , and threaded for a all SS MAE 22mag suppressor , so far I'm loving IT .
    Post some pics soon , but its a supoer smooth little gun , and should be awesome around the farm for Magpies , Rabbits & Hares , which will be its main diet .

    The 17 was not made , when I brought this one , and IF it was out , then it would be between the 22 & 17 version , BUT I still may have gone with the 22 as , I wanted it to use it on close range goats as will , and as such I like having a heavier slug .

    The scope needs swapping out , as its a close range blackpowder scope .

    Also need to buy a couple of spare mags .

    Nice rifle Chris. I think i would go for a 22 hornet over the 17hornet as well. My k-hornet is great on goats with the heavier projectiles.

    Hi Gillie ,

    Yeap , the 17 Hornet is interesting , but uses a 20gr bullet , I will be using a 40-45gr bullet , so twice the payload of the 17 , will be tiring the 35 & 40gr vmax bullet soon , scope needs replacing as well .

    The 40gr vmax is a great little projectile - that is what i use in my k-hornet. The 52gr speer projectiles were great as well. I think my father uses 50gr spire points in his k-hornet.

    I had one of those in 223 and it was a really nice rifle, accurate as can be with speer tnt projectiles
