BillK, I wonít try to convert you to the 17WSM. I no longer fool with the 17HMR, so the way I figure it that leaves more for both of us lol.

Has anyone seen any of the A17 HMR ammo anywhere. Buddy uses it in his Ruger. He had never tried any, I had a bunch of odds and ends of 17HMR for the Savage and CZ I was tinkering with. The 200 round packs were pricey but shot very good for me.

I bought the whole case for $12.95 per 50. Cheaper than what it was on the shelf at cabelas/basspro a few years ago. He did tell me that this came in last month?

I didnít really need anymore, but I donít look a gift horse in the mouth either.[/quote]

Even if you did not need more, what a find and now you have a small gold mine

He went and opened the cabinet and got down on very bottom shelf and reached
all the way in the back, how many do you want? There was a whole case that he said the kids never put out because there was no spot marked for it. They then had it behind some shotgun shells, 28 gauge to boot.

That is more a case of being a canny buyer. Strike when the iron is hot I say, had a chance at a bulk buy a while ago, should have jumped at "20.00 per box take the lot", but I hesitated at the finish line, and lost out. Hopefully some more will come up in the future at better than retail prices.
