I bought my son a 452 American in 17HMR over eight years ago for his 18th.
We took it out this last Saturday. At about 60 yards you could cover the 5 shot groups with a nickel. We took six different loads with us, two of which were really accurate with dime size groups. This beautiful rifle is topped with a Leupold VXII 3X9. Sweet, sweet little gun.
I should have bought one in 22lr as well.
