    Arrow 17 hmr or 17 wsm

    I am seriously interested in a 17 hmr rifle for target shooting. But now the 17 wsm is "about to drop". Thoughts on the topic? I plan on waiting a little bit, but even if I had a 17 wsm a year from now, it's still a new cartridge. I was looking at 223 a while back, but I already have a loud gun, and bullets are not readily available for the evil bullet.

    1) Go to the store
    2) Look at the ammo shelf
    3) Observe little to no ammo
    4) Realize that the WSM isn't out yet (to my knowledge)
    5) HOPE there is some 17 HMR
    6) Buy all the 17 HMR ammo you can
    7) Try to look for a 17 HMR rifle

    I have been spying the HMRs. I have been drifting towards Marlin XVT, I see the Savage Mark II BSEV in 17hmr frequently. I just can't get over the spiral fluted barrel and the "light red" wood grain.

    Get what you can, like I said. It's really more of what you can get your hands on.

    WSM isn't available yet. It is far superior to the HMR, but you'll have to wait for it to arrive.

    I know that it's not out yet. But it's "coming soon". I also was not sure if there was any buzz about it, or are people happy enough with the HMR they didn't really "want" the 17 wsm.

    If Savage is the only manufacturer to be making the WSM in the near future and the release date is after the 7 round magazine date ..... we are outa luck as , I believe , the savage guns come with an eight-round, rotary magazine standard.
