Where to buy some 17HMR



Log in to see fewer ads
I noticed this ammo is hard to find. Can anyone help me find some ammo. I just bought the gun, but can't get my hands on any ammo for it. I'm not sure if I am posting this in the wrong place. Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure how far you are from MA but 17HMR has been pretty easy to find around here. Although I haven't been anywhere looking in a couple weeks.

I understand what the OP is going through. I bought a Winchester 1885 in 17 HMR. I was able to find one box of 17 HMR, hope to find more before Sage Rat season! I do have other rifles to shoot so I won't miss out on Sage Rat funerals!

Yesterday I bought 4 boxes of 17 HMR (Hornady) from Sportsman's Warehouse in Lexington, KY. They had probably 100 boxes on the shelf.

They received a huge shipment of rifle and pistol primers as well.

I bought a Marlin 1894 (.44 mag) yesterday off the shelf at a big box sporting goods store.

As I was filling out the paperwork I was asked if I needed ammo. I told them yes. They came from the back with two boxes of 50, .44 mag.

The price inhales MinMan but they show stock https://www.jgsales.com/-p-5238.html

Have fun with the rifle, .17 HMR is a really fun and amazingly accurate caliber!

The last two gun shows I have noticed no one selling that round. All other all over place venders selling ammo at high prices.

I can say one thing I was glad back in April & May I hot all the Walmarts that were selling ammo, and bought has such has they had knowing we will have shortage, from all from 6 stores. Last count 5,600 rounds.
Now no Walmart here sells ammo.

I found some CCI at a local gun shop. He wants 17.00 a box. What a ripoff.

With 9 mm going for .65 a round, and 223/556 for .90 a round .34 a round is still better than a stick in the eye. Its like gas, the car dont go if you dont give them your dough

Mach 2 is pretty easy to find, and I satisfied my .22lr need with a large purchase of Ely Edge (black).

I have about 600-800 rounds of 17hmr. The rifle I'll use with this ammo isn't in my hands yet. It will be a single shot so I suppose my supply will last some time.

That's what it jumped to everywhere up here. Had been 10.99-14.99 now its 16.49 to 17.99. Welcome to inflation.

Mach 2 jumped to 10$ and wmr to 14. Even big box stores are charging lgs scalper prices. Yesterday I found 12$ 9mm next to the 16.49 17hmr.... go figure

Well I hope you bought a couple boxes MinMan. Beats the heck out of $49 a box.
