I get that but my experience with .223 by Winchester was the same. What are they doing with powder?

Ammo dirty?

I agree. My 17 hmr a are nowhere near as dirty and can clean up quickly. Waiting on a 17 Hornet which I predict will be as clean as the hmr with the range and power of the wsm. Maybe more[emoji1]

Ammo dirty?

My experience with 17 WSM ammo is that I get heavy carbon fouling from a day of prairie dogging. Also copper fouling. All ammonium is made by Winchester as I understand it. Last week I also used...

Two considerations on the Tikka that hums. My primary use would be prairie dog shooting which means 100 plus rounds in the field which is a lot of humming. Second, my Savage and CZ 17 hers are as...

Wyoming prairie dogs last week, were consistent hits at 8 MOA holdover. That puts the Bmag at 300+..Very impressive to me. My son said two years ago he was hitting at 350.

Shot 1-1.5 inches at 100yds. Since both my CZ 455 American and Savage 93R17 will outshoot that, I thought Iíd give Sako/Tikka a chance to compete. My thinking is that what I get back will be a real...

I thought stock. I have broken down and adjusted action screw torque. Will shoot again on sandbags rather than rest. Obviously harmonics. Also I only shot 17g. Will try 20g. Thanks for your input.

Tikka hums

Just shot a new T1x in 17 hmr. I notice a zingy hum in the rifle when it shoots. Does anyone else have this with the Tikka? I also have Savage and CZ in 17hnr and do not have this sound.
