.17 HMR RELEASED!
June 1, 2011
We are extremely pleased with this caliber. With help from Hornady, this unit has been extensively tested and has proven itself to be very capable in the field. At the recent Big 3 Event hosted by David Fortier, we ran 2 rifles out to ranges of 400 yards and, despite windy conditions, which made shooting challenging, the guns performed well. This is right on the back of taking two different guns to Blackwater and running them through the advanced tactical carbine course. While running guns at the Big 3, we had an opportunity to run one of the rifles with the excellent magnum rimfire silencer from Thunderbeast Arms Corp. The rifle exhibited a slight shift in zero and ran without a hitch for the two days of the event. This unscheduled test provided a quick insight into the flexibility of the rifle and everyone agreed that this combination would serve well for any varminting purposes.
Production of these rifles has been ongoing for over a year now. We and our .17 HMR customers are very happy with the function, performance, and accuracy of this rifle.
