    Yes it was started with the 22 mag semis. Being blow back they can start opening while pressure is too high ripping the case once a bit of fouling has built up. Chamber polishing may be an option?

    Yeah I think that's why Savage came out with their new 'delayed blowback' .17 semi, the A17 I think?

    I don't know if the 17hm2 has those issues, it's a necked down 22lr case so shouldn't have the higher pressure of the larger wmr/hmr case.

    Obviously something wrong though!

    I wouldn't buy an hm2 even if it was working right though, pain in the ass finding ammo for them now I think.

    And it is the same seller that has the Paua shell cheek rest.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
