17 hmr
 
Hello Everyone,

I know there are folks that don't care for the .17HMR. That's for another discussion.

Here's my question:

Gun:

brand new Taurus .17 HMR, 4 inch, revolver, absolutely spotless clean, bright shiny clean bore, good chamber seal. Good lock up, good hammer, and trigger.

Ammo:

Hornady 17 Grain "V-Max", brand new.

I've noticed some of the brass has come out with small splits in the case after being fired. Not all, not even an alarming amount. Seems like a preasure problem. I know the ammo is loaded up high by design.

Just curious.

Best Wishes,

M.

i faintly remember seeing a list of weapons that was on a no longer use for the .17 caliber. something to do with pressure. i cant remember if it included any pistols as most of the 10 weapons or so on the list were auto loading rifles.

might try a google search. hope it helps a little. if i can remember where i saw that recall thing i will repost.

Thanks for posting

after further thought. you should call taurus and tell them what is occuring with your handgun. they are suppsoed to have pretty decent customer support.

I have a Marlin .17 HMR bolt gun, with a 3-9x40 Leupold VX-2. The most accurate out of the box gun I've ever owned.

some answers
 
OK, Even tho there doesnt seem to be much interest, I discovered ONE thing today at the range with my son.

With the Taurus revolver, Winchester .17 HMR split A LOT more cases than Hornady V-MAX.

It's still a neat little gun.


And Pioneer,, I'd love to find a rifle like yours, only left handed.

Hey man, 34 years and still going-- 218 certified and hope to stay that way.

Thank you for your service.

I'm not bagging anyone's choice of firearm, but is there a pistol that truly exploits the 17 HMR's potential?

The high point of this round is, as I understand it, it's flat trajectory, hence accuracy, from a rifle.

Just askin.:confused:

would bet its not the ammo. You used the "T" word, so I would go back to the manufacturer and engage them. Lots of luck with that. I hope you get it worked out, know how frustrating it is to have a malfunctioning firearm. :mad:

If you can find a English speaking customer service rep. Otherwise you need to be able to speak Portugese.
