i would have to advise against using the 17 hmr in a semi auto platform, if you recall a while back there was this Warning (http://www.americanrifleman.org/ArticlePage.aspx?id=1927&cid=4). If you really want a 17hmr stick to a bolt action rifle. i love my savage 93r rifle and is a very fun and accurate gun.

sorry didn't realize I posted in the gallery. I have a cz but interested in the ar platform and thought being a rim fire the 17hmr is not affected by the ban was cool

From what i read there was only a problem with the Remington 597. (I could be wrong)

Read here:http://www.remington.com/pages/news-and-resources/safety-center/safety-warning-recall-notice.aspx

Remington states not to use 17HMR in "ANY" semi-auto firearm.

As 7.62 Charlie said, only in the Remington 597 because they were using a tungsten alloy which made it VERY brittle. Alexander Arms has repeatedly addressed this issue in the gun media and have proven there are no such problems whatsoever in their .17 AR. Volquartsen also makes .17 semi-auto's with no problems whatsoever.

Of course Remington blamed it on the ammo rather than their gun. And of course they say the .17 HMR is no good for ANY semi-auto, because they don't make one and the competition does.
