I seen your post on the Savage forum.
One thing I dont think anyone pointed out is that the 17HMR is more like a center fire than a rimfire(in referance to bullets and FPS).IE fully copper jacketed,not a waxed lead bullet.Also traveling much faster.
I have never had a centerfire that got more than 50 or so rounds through it and not have it tell me I should clean it.22 rf ,with waxed lead bullets will go much longer between cleanings than their centerfire brothers.
