im just selling my 1517 annie the price of ammo here [uk] is ridiculous so getting rid.im hoping to snare a donor action or buy a completed rig in 17ak hornet i think i can reload this cheaper than the 17hmr.its a shame really the hmr is one sweet round and very accurate but when it costs too much its gotta go.

I have a lefty Savage 93, blued. I buffed the sear, greased the trigger parts and turned the accutrigger to it's lightest setting.

I whopped a groundhog at 200 with it on Friday. I played hooky from work and was using the 17 for hitting stationary clay birds at 200 while spotting for a friend. The stupid 'chuck walked out and sat next to the target post, it was almost too easy.

I hit numerous squirrels, birds (crows and starlings) and chipmunks with it. The 17 Vmax is the only bullet I shoot because the 17 JHP's and 20 Vmax don't perform as well, the JHP's flat out suck. The Vmax shoots significantly tighter, so I stick with it.


Ammo costs more than 223's do, but it's a no recoil, manually operated rifle that my girlfriend enjoys shooting and it's surprisingly accurate. 1/2" 100y groups are normal on calm days and keeping them within 1" on anything but the windiest of days is not too hard.

I managed several repeated hits on a 400y steel 23"x36" plate on different days, but it's already subsonic at that range. 300y is a more reliable cut-off for it.

Riverman, what all did you have to do to convert your 40x? I am thinking of converting mine.

Thanks

5 of us guys have 17s. We get together once in a while. We are lucky if 1 out of the 5 shoot a 5 shot group under a inch.
I can't sell ours because I bought it for my wife. It is a salvage with a .800 od barrel. In a laminated red white & blue patriot stock.
