.17 Aguila: 2550 fps with an 18-gr polytip bullet!

Ski posted a picture of a box of preproduction .17 Aguila ammo over on the .17 Rifles board. The .17 Aguila is simply a .22LR necked down to .172 cal, for those of you unfamiliar with it. Anyways, the box says 2550 fps with an 18-gr bullet! That is slightly better than the .17 HMR but from a smaller case! I have no idea how they did it, or if the round will live up to those ballistics when released, but if thats for real it should give the .17 HMR a run for it's money. Imagine all the .22LR guns out there right now that could simply be rebarrelled (esp. 10/22's and 77/22's).

"Retail Price: $825.00
Introducing the Volquartsen Cheetah Semi-Auto Pistol. The new pistol will be offered in 17 Aguila"

This is what they stated. I guess "will be" is the vague part of it. It is the second sentence in the description though. I feel it's a little deceiving. It should say

"Retail Price: $825.00
Introducing the Volquartsen Cheetah Semi-Auto Pistol. The new pistol will be offered in 17 Aguila if you feel lucky"

Edit- It's too bad they were deceived as well by the lizard people.
