.17 wsm selling briskly



Log in to see fewer ads
I’ve wondered if you guys have noticed brisk sales for your local supply of wsm ammo. Here in ND it moves pretty quickly. Walmart stocks the stuff every week and I end up buying the last 2 boxes or they will be out of stock. My local gun store owner tells me he sells tons of it. I sure hope this caliber is catching on.

Doesn't seem to sell much here in VA, but when I was in South Dakota it sold fast especially in the spring when prarrie dog pups were up.

Guys do a lot of varmint hunting here in the Dakotas I suppose, probably not nearly as popular in other parts of the country. It’s definitely not a target or large game round.

No PDs or multiple varmint targets of opportunity in this neck of the woods hence ammo not a fast mover. I'm set well enough to get me thru part of my next life.

The price discrepancy between local stores and the internet make it hard to sell here.

I guess this is about the best area for varmints, I watch cabelas and Walmart’s inventories pretty closely and they definitely go through some shells. The local gun shop does too. I was hoping it was good all around so we could get some new rifles ect...

17 WSM

When there is a manufacturer such as Anschutz , Sako , CZ , Kimber or that ilk brings a rifle cambered in WSM , I will be certainly joining the line-up for ammo .

what we need is a quality rifle in the $400 and below class like a ruger american. Even $500. A mid priced rifle would do wonders for the cartridges success.

The fancier manufacturers may be waiting to enter the market until Winchester manufactures more consistently.
