View Full Version : .17 HM2 Opinions
11-20-2006, 02:12 PM
For some reason I am interested in a .17 HM2 :confused: and was curious what your opinions of it are. I have heard all sides from reading articles, but wanted some first hand opinions if anyone has one. Thanks.

what are you looking to do with it?

...is as good as mine!! I am a big rimfire fan, mainly because they are much cheaper to shoot and centerfires, and the HM2 is the only one I don't have.
Basically, does it out perform the .22lr or is it primarily a 50 yard shooter like the .22lr? I have read both in articles. If I buy one, I may try it squirrel hunting, but I only do that maybe twice a year.
Really, just wanting another toy and trying to get someone to talk me out of it :p or into it :D.

outperforms the 22lr... great squirrel/bird gun. but thats about it....

Well, if all it is is a great squirrel and bird gun, I have plent of those in .22lr. Guess I will have to spend my money elsewhere. I am leaning toward a Stevens 200 in .223 if I can find the right price. Dicks usually runs some pretty decent prices on them.
Thanks for the info.

have you checked out the .204 ruger? if not please do, i'm sure you'll be drooling at the mouth :)

I have some info on a custom .204 with a Stevens action, Savage 12fv heavy barrel and Savage synthetic stock with bipod for $375. It needs a new box because it was built from a .308 and needs the .204 box to feed correctly. The guy, who is in NW Ohio, wants $375 obo. Looks like a great rifle at the price, but I can't seem to get past the price of the ammo here in SE Ohio. The price of the ammo would bury me. Still contemplating it, but I doubt if I pull the trigger on the deal.

.204 ammo is not that expensive for a centerfire...
yes .223 ammo is much cheaper, but again you get what you pay for.
