We usually buy a gun, then search for ammo that shoots best. With the Mach2, it seems we have to buy the ammo, then search for the rifle that will shoot it.

A question for you.....I too have an Anschutz 1502. I've grown increasingly frustrated with it or maybe frustrated with the 17Mach2 in general. I've killed lots of squirrels with mine including...

Odd....I've never had that happen, at least that I'm aware of, but would be inclined to check the rifle. I've owned 3 HMRs and have fired 100s of rounds through each of them. While I certainly...

Like 'squirrel1' I dislike the rattle or loose ammo. I solved the problems with an "ammo wallet". I now own 3 of them, all the same size and hold .22, 17HMR, and 17Mach2 equally well. They hold 30...

I think $1200 is acceptable, but value is in the eye of the beholder. Went to an auction a while back and a 9417 sold for $2500. It was NIB. That was more than 2X what I bid on it. OUCH!!

Good review, but I've never liked the A17 so I'll wait for some regular guys to give their opinions about the A17-17Mach2.

Sounds like a bountiful harvest. My Anschutz 1502 17Mach2 shoots Eley, Hornady, CCI and Federal very well. But, it depends on the lot of ammo, shooting conditions, target (alive or paper), and me. ...

Smile Eley Score!

Went to a Gun Show in Manhattan, KS this morning and found a brick of Eley 17Mach2 ammo for $80. It shoots extremely well in my rifle; my favorite squirrel rifle so I'm set for awhile.
