I could only find 3 varieties of 17HM2 ammo, 2 from Hornady and 1 from CCI.

Hornady lists the 17 grain VMax bullet and the 15.5 grain NTX bullet.

CCI lists the 17 grain VMax bullet.

I've owned several of each style, fixed and adjustable sight styles, of the 4.5" and 6" 422, 622, and 2206, plus a couple of the other styles.

While the 422 and 622 are lighter to carry, I seem to...

17HM2 is the best tree squirrel round that has yet to be introduced.

I think that you'd have to have a full-auto 17HM2 to ever get close to getting a barrel as big as a 917M2/M2S hot enough to matter in any material way.

Unless it was an non-cataloged limited run, the answer is NO.

AFAIK, Marlin only cataloged 2 bolt action rifles in 17HM2, the 917M2 that featured blued metal and a hardwood stock and the 917M2S...

I bought a 99M1 that I didn't need today. NSN, so I guess that there isn't any way to determine when it was made.

I have found that the accuracy of CCI and Hornady can vary quite a bit from lot to lot.

I don't understand why CCI can't make 17HM2 ammo that is as consistently accurate as the old Eley and...

I got mine yesterday, 10/02/19. It is a nice looking rifle and is begging to be scoped, zeroed, and carried into the hardwoods in search of fox squirrels.

At least $900, $650 for the rifle and $250 for the scope/rings/bases.

That is about what I paid for a used, but minty, 1502 and a Leupold 3-9x33 EFR to go on it.
