17 Hornady Hornet



Log in to see fewer ads
Another interesting centerfire rifle just showed up in the RFC Trading Post. It is a very unusual Chiappa Mini-Sharps in 17 Hornady Hornet, with a Hi-Lux 6X Malcom scope. I did a bit of research and read good things about the rifle, the scope and the cartridge. The cartridge is 22 Hornet necked down to take a 17 cal. bullet. The rifle is a smaller copy of a Sharps, made in Italy. The scope is an old style long tube scope, made in the USA

Anyone interested in unusual single shot centerfire rifles should check this deal out. I just spent all of my firearms cash on another rifle and scope or I would be making an offer on this one.

Does anyone here on RFC have any experience with 17 HH?

The 17HH is a nice cartridge, my CZ527 groups factory ammo under .5" at 100 yards. Ammo and brass are hard to find right now but Hornady is expected to be running some soon

I have a Savage in 17 hornet. Its a good shooting gun and I like the caliber. I took 3 woodchucks at around 235 yards last year with it. Also several other's at distances closer than that. I just wish Hornady would get some more ammo/brass out soon.
