Default The new .22 Mag round

Anyone have a rifle in the fairly new Win .22 Magnum or super magnum, or whatever it is labeled?
I can't find a mag with the article on it. It was just about to catch on when, all the ammo for everything disappeared from shelves.
I have a 10.22 Magnum and thought, when I first read of it maybe a conversion but.... the pressures may be too high for blowback and the shell too long etc?

The Savage B-something in that caliber is sold everywhere. A real bargain it seems but sells slow. I am not giddy to get in another costly caliber, so waiting to hear more like OP.

Well, the .17 HMR is a .22Magnum necked down to .17 caliber. The .17 Winchester Super Magnum is based on the .27 caliber blank cartridge used in power nailers- it is thicker brass, higher pressures than the .17 HMR, higher velocities (about 3000 fps)- again, necked down to .17 caliber.

They attempted a semi auto .17 HMR, and pulled (most of) them off the market. There are few firearms in the .17 WSM, and only 2 that I know of in semi- the Volquartsen semi-automatic, and the semi-automatic Franklin Armory F-17.

If all you had to do was rechamber, somebody would be doing that. Pressures are likely to be way to high to swap out a gun based on .22 LR.

When I shoot 30 gr 22wmr ammo the wind blows it around like a 22 cal pellet rifle. 17 cal ammo is much lighter than 30gr and only marginally faster than a 22 wmr with a light bullet. On windy says I prefer 45gr 22wmr ammo. Yes it is much slower but ir gets to the target without being blown off target by 3 or 4 inches. I fail to see the point or any 17 cal firearm unless you are shooting indoors.

To date, I have not read much good about the 17WSM, or the guns it's chambered in. (Not many). I also haven't seen the ammo for sale.

i think if i were going to replace my Savage rifle in 17HMR, it would probably be the Savage in 17 Hornet. it's a 22 Hornet necked down to a 17 caliber. plus it's a centerfire cartridge, so it could be reloaded, which would give me an advantage over my 17HMR rifle that i have now.

You'd probably HAVE to reload it, too, huh? I wonder what that ammo would cost? Or if you could even find it....

I believe I'll wait for the .17 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer.
