Well, itís done. I suppose I will pick it up in the next week sometime. I never purchase a fire arm that isnít ďdelayed.Ē Mox nix. The dealer seems more frustrated by it than I am.

I like the look of it pretty well. I have a brand new 4-12 Meopta sitting here that will probable work well on it. Iíll probably mount it in Warne rings.

Suppose I should get some 17HMR ammo now. What do you guys prefer? To be honest, Iíve never paid that much attention to the 17 HMR.

With the exception of Winchester and Browning label all the rest is made by CCI. I've shot cases of the CCI/Hornady 17gr Vmax ammo and it shoots as good as any and better than most others.

CCI came out with the A17 17HMR ammo a few years ago that shoots the same 17gr Vmax bullet but it's 100fps faster than the standard 17gr Vmax 17HMR ammo and it seems to have mixed reviews. Some people prefer it over anything else while others have better accuracy with the standard velocity stuff.

Generally, the 17gr Vmax ammo shoots pretty well but every gun is different so you may have to try a few different ones to see what shoots best in your gun.

I have one in 22 magnum, a model you blokes get its a cheaper version called 457 beech wood. I have a Nikon EFR target 3-9x40 mounted these scopes have a large ocular lense and the bolt clears easily with low rings

It shoots very accurately with rem 33 grn premium, very happy with the rifle

I haven't seen Rem 22 mag ammo for sale in New Zealand for a number of years.
My 22 Mag loved the Rem offering followed by the Hornady, wish I could find some more Rem ammo........Kiwi

I have the 457 Lux in 17HMR. Groups are .50" at 50yds and open up to 1.00" at 100. Now that's in the Texas wind, we very seldom get a no wind day here. I paid 499.99 for the Lux(walnut), all in around 560.00 before FFL.

I picked it up today and mounted a new Instinct/Meopta 4.5-14 I had sitting here in Talley low rings. I can see daylight, but canít get a .001 feeler gauge between the scope and barrel. Oh well, going to have to order the high ring set. Looks like they are .25 higher. I have a friend who is a low mounted scope freak. I learned from his experience that the barrel will expand enough in the sun to shift the impact if you donít have about 10 thousandths clear air between the scope and barrel on rimfire rifles. Itís a shame a buddy had these sitting unused.
