This months outdoor life has an article on it. I has a WAY better trajectory and range than the .17 HMR or the .22 mag

That is a 20gr bullet. I can easily push a Barnes 52gr XFB or Speer 53grHP to 3200fps. It will carry more energy, be accurate at further distance then the .17WSM. It does come close to the .17 Hornet. Well not really, that is at 3600+ fpr w/ a 20gr. A 40gr .223 can easily hit 3900fps. I'm not sure what the hype is about. You get 1 shot w/ a cartridge. You can't reload it, so you are at the whim of your local shop, and manufacturers.

Its manly because ranchers and farmers don't let people hunt on there property with centerfire round like the 17 hornet and 223 so It helps out there plus it a rimfire that shoots a bullet 3000 fps that's pretty sweet and it still cheap to shoot not the cheapest but you get what I'm saying lol

I here you, but it can cause issues in places like southern NH. It is rimfire only or shotgun. A 250-300 yard rimfire may change the rules to shotgun only. That would not make me happy. There are quite a few fields that owners will let you shoot woodchucks on, this may change that also w/ the 1st errant round that hits a house or barn because the shooter thinks he is now a super sniper. It's not going to be as quiet as a .22lr, .22wmr, or .17hmr either.

Ya true time will tell I really don't believe it's goin to be that popular because I think the guns for them will be overpriced till the new wears down plus the 17hmr already has the varmint world in it's hands because people normally go from 17hmr to 223 for extra power and range

I'm kinda old fashioned. I have a Browning A-bolt Gold Medallion in .22wmr. It is a tack driver at 100 yards and past. I bought a Marlin 917V for my boys from a shop that owed me a favor. I did not pay retail. The Marlin is a fun rifle, but no where near the quality of the Browning. That has a 1lb trigger. Fit and finish like glass. My .223 is a CZ527 varminter. Similar to the Browning in quality. The single set trigger is set at 12oz. I hope your right about the .22wsm, but as we know, the potential to politicians is worse then reality.
