Simple 17wsm compatibility question



Log in to see fewer ads
Is it possible and safe to shoot 17hmr in a 17wsm rifle?

I know you can't shoot 17 wsm in a 17hmr rifle do to case pressures and length differences.

Thank you

No!
The WSM and HMR are completely different rounds with completely different case dimensions! Just like .22LR and WMR are different and cant be SAFELY fired from the same chambers.
