.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).

CHIEF SAYS : VIPER , You would buy a barrel for a non-existing
caliber ? Wow. collectors item .

I checked Volquartsens site . They plainly state .

" we WILL be taking orders " . duhh.
I WILL be playing the lottery - doesnt mean I will ever win.

Next question .
Say Volquartsen " gives " you a complete gun,
What " how" will you get ammo for it.?

Ok. MILLIONS or rounds were sold at this years shot show .
and what WILL you have to pay for some ?

No NO, no AND no again.
NO ONE = bought diddily. THEY placed a promise order.

promised to buy = when its available - When is that? never ?

manufacturers taking orders , selling things that dont exist.
"BUY - A - DREAM ""

PEOPLE wake UP = your being taken on A ride .
lizard style.

or JUST GIVE - chief a "box price" and I'll shut up.

Chief says : Still doesnt answer the question.

What does 1 box cost ?

not : a target price , or $5.95 - $6.95 ?

A simple (buy now) (1 box) (order) (off the shelf).

Take my money= (put it in mty hand) ( mail it) (deliver it)
I dont care . just one confirmed selling price,
for (one box)

NOBODY . NOBODY = in the entire world can give me that.
because - the one BOX = DOES NOT EXIST.
