One of my 617s. DAO, Apex mass hammer, Allchin mount and Vortex Venom. It has a very, very nice trigger pull.

Yesterday I had two Automatch duds out of 80 or so in my 617. They were all that was left of that box, donít recall issues shooting the rest in a couple different rifles.

Love the 617 .... never have a problem with misfires even on older ammo.

I got to shoot a rental 617 with a 6" barrel at my local range. It handled nicely and was accurate enough with CCI SV. Only complaints on the gun were all maintenance related but I guess that is what you have to expect from a rental.

Ditto what others have said about reliability with nearly any ammo you want to give it. The majority of the ammo I shoot is Federal AutoMatch. I shoot a lot of it and occasionally, there will be one that does not go off on the first strike, even though, upon examination, there is a deep dent in the rim. Almost always, I can turn the case around in the chamber and it fires. It's rare but it happens.
