I have fired a .17 and its a fun little gun, but its a tiny little thing. The velocity is great, but I would think .22 mag would be better. It's a fun cartridge and great for varmint shooting, but like everyone else is sayin, its like every firearm, it depends on your preference and application.

Some one should take a 50bmg make it a rimfire and neck it down to .17 only if it where posible. Lol. In all seriousness between all three i would go with the 17hmr first and then the 22wmr. If your only guna punch paper ull be impressed with a pencil hole at 100yds.

Idk, I remember seein it a couple years ago, and a quick google search found it again.
The other one I posted a link to was made by P.O. Ackley (the legendary Ackley), to achieve 5000 fps, but it only got to 4600 fps.
