I didn't think anyone made a gun chambered in 17 super mag besides savage. Am I mistaken?

It depends on what Volquartsen does to deal with the out of battery problem. I wouldn't own a 17 HMR semi built on a straight blowback action, much less a 17 WSM.

Life's too short to deal with guns that explode.

Ruger makes the Model 77 in 17 Hornet. I imagine it would be a natural for the .17 WSM. Personally I wouldn't go with the Marlin out of those two manufacturers.
