I hope Volquartsen haven't got the twist rate wrong for the summit, 1 in 9 on the Ruger is perfect for the 20gr. 1 in 8.25 seems to be good for 25gr.

Bulk cheap ammo is all 20gr not 25gr around...

When I look at the Vudoo action I just can't help but think they stuffed the design a little by not making the port large enough, I'm not sure the WSM would work.

Zermatt will do for me

Zermatt might be the 1st one out of the blocks for new 17wsm in 2020, thou Volquartsen are telling those who have placed orders on the summit to expect about a 6 month wait.

either way exciting...
