Picked up a .17 HMR 14" barrel for contender Sunday at a show. Robbed the scope off the .44mag barrel and put on it (T/C 2.5X7). Been wanting to try the .17 for a while now, let you know how it turns out....

It's a wild thing!
Use one on anything less than a groundhog and you've got hamburger.
Of course, that's from a rifle barrel... the shorter barrel might slow it down enough so it doesn't take squirrels and bunnies and instantly turn them into frappe ala blood... :shock:
