I grew up shooting thousands of rounds out of my dads 591. It is the king of rimfires for sure. In my opinion the 17wsm should have been a 20 wsm. Then it would have been really special. A while back I was lucky enough to find a custom 591 myself. I love it! The only downside is that I still think the original Remington ammo was the best. I actually shot the barrel out of an old Marlin 22 mag in my youth. ( how many rounds does that take). And I never found an ammo that would penetrate on coyotes, not over damage squirrels and rabbits, and anchor groundhogs like the 5mm. I have been using the 17hmr with the 20 grain xtp for the last 20 years, and it is very good also. If the 17wsm was loaded with a 25 grain xtp it would be awesome. I love your new rifle! Congrats!
