One of my CZ 527 17 Hornets is a finicky feeding little bugger and if I try and cycle a new round up in the chamber by using the bolt handle like I normally would it is nearly 100% failure and just flat will not feed, BUT, if I push the bolt straight forward with my thumb at the back of the bolt like I described above, it will feed butter smooth.

Give it a try and see if it helps cure your feeding issue.
I was wondering it was because of the spacer in the magazine - does anyone have a 204 Ruger, how do they feed?

I had both a 204 and 17 Rem in the CZ 527 Varmint model and the feeding from the magazine was smooth as silk.

Do believe that the spacer is the culprit? We need a mini micro action (in stainless).

I will one up the 17HH and put a kick in for the 17FB.
Don’t get me wrong I really like the 17HH, I have come to hate center feed rifles it seems. PITA to feed single shot.
I lucked into a 17FB. Shoots well at hornet levels and can be stepped on over the top of it. Brass and ammo can be tough to find. That made from 223 will need a lot of work.

I have a 17HH,17Remington, 204, and 22H all on 527 platform. The CZ rifles have a good track record accuracy wise for a factory rig.All of these shot as well as expected, need to get motivated and move these. I used these as a test platform for the cartridges. I have picked what I like and pieced together other rifles for my needs. I am now playing with the mini Howa with hopes the issues I dislike with the CZ go away.
B&C are making stocks for the mini, there are also chassis for them as well.

Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know myself, I am bound and determined to make this dang B mag shoot consistently. I won’t say it is all the rifle as I think there is plenty of room for improvement with the ammo.
Have tossed around measuring rims, but most seem to agree it is a rim hardness more than thickness issue. I ran around 2-300 through mine a few weeks ago. Not one miss fire or hard rim hit.
According to Calfee the whole platform for the bmag is a wreck from the start, as far as rim fires go.

I currently own two 17 WSM rifles. One is the early 24" barrel wood/stainless 77/17 and the other is the 18.5" barrel laminate stock 77/17 rifle. Both shoot less than MOA with all three current brands of 17 WSM ammo loaded with 20 grain bullets.

As others have said, the 17 HH is a step up in performance from the 17 WSM, and the CZ 17 HH that I own also shoots extremely well.

Maybe for some shooters it all boils down to do you want to reload CF with its obvious advantages or shoot RF. I do both and I like both for different purposes. With its added speed, the 17 HH definitely is the king if you're comparing the two cartridges for range, etc.

Yep.


The .17 WSM is a wonderful round and fulfills what it is intended for.


Some of my pals have Savage .17 WSM rifles as well as I do, and we will never part with them.

We didn't buy them for the purpose of outdoing centerfires.

I also have been hoping for a good bolt or a upper for a ar 15, I have a stainless laminated bmag and that thing is a real pos in my opinion. I have used it enough to know I like the wsm tho.

I am late to this thread. I found this rifle in a 17 WSM. It is likely the nicest 17 WSM ever made.

I wonder if they ever got the accuracy bugs out of it. I was that >< far away from having one.

Since you mentioned the 17 Hornet as being an alternative, unless you are limited to a rimfire only area, there is really no comparison between the 17 WSM and 17 Hornet. I have both, in fact I have two 17 Hornets, and can tell you first hand, the 17 Hornet is on a completely different level. For mass volume shooting, my 17 WSM is great, but beyond that, the 17 Hornet is in a completely different league.

For a very nice quality 17 Hornet rifle that is reasonably priced, the CZ 527 Varmint model in 17 Hornet is a great little gun. I have two of them and they make me smile every time I take them out.

I don't know for sure. It is a beautiful rifle and like I said probably the finest made 17 WSM. It might not be the most accurate but it is nice.
I wish CZ would turn a 17 WSM out.
