Default Savage .17 Winchester Super Mag

I was in a local walmart today and they had a Savage .17 Winchester Super Mag in stock. They even had ammo for. So very tempting. But as a southpaw I'm going to wait for a lefty .17wsm to show up.

Anyone seen or even heard of a lefty .17 Win Super Mag yet?

Looks interesting.....

" At a whopping 3,000 fps with a 20 grain bullet, the .17 WSM is a laser beam compared to 2,400 fps with a similar weight projectile from its .17 HMR counterpart. When launching heavier 25 grain bullets with 375 foot-pounts of energy, the .17 WSM outperforms the HMR by half. "

Interesting as ammo is still non existent online. I have a B mag on order with my FFL, crossing my fingers on the ammo situation.

Yes, probably should have been posted in the rimfire section. oops.

There is no shortage of ammo in North Idaho. Cabelas ammo section is plugged. The Wal Marts have everything except .22.

True. Although,you may run into trouble if you can't tell the difference between rimfire and centerfire and try to shoot some of that "lot of ammo" out of the wrong gun....

I love this new cartridge but in these uncertain times, w/o ability to reload the case I will hafta pass,
we are on a downward trend on guns/ammo,
had they made it reloadable you could buy a stock of ammo and take a chance

This would be sweet in a TC contender.
Perfect host barrel to rechamber into any of the small 17's...

I'd love to see an AR. Just because it looks evil and the politicians would hate it

Read about the .22WSM in the latest American Rifelman. Looks to be a great cartridge. Would be a fun one to use on coyotes.

I'm going to start looking for one, not sure who will have them here, still would probably hold out for a bull barrel gun.

Midway has had the ammo at $15.97 when it's available, probably 20 boxes per stocking, (always sold out when I get my e-mail notification). Bought 3 boxes on line so I could sight in rifle at $50.00 per box, Just about killed me. Have 10 boxes of 20gr. up in Montana waiting for me purchased for $18.45 a box with no tax. Waiting for the case of 25gr. to come in, same price. Montana has no problem with .22 Ammo either L/R or WMR. Paid $14.95 a box for Winchester HV 2100+ fps.
I would also like to have a bull barrel on my WSM along with another stock, which I'm will happen in the near future.

Just found out about this cardtridge and rifle today...been looking around online and it seems petty good for a rimfire. There's a pretty good video report on it on Varminter.com. He goes out and smashes a few squirrels with it. Pretty devastating.

$13.97 a box is about what .17HMR is. Does that sound right?

The only way the cartridge is going to be a winner is if Winchester can crank out enough ammo to satisfy demand. They are currently not able to do this.

Well the ammo for the 17 WSM is now showing up in Orange Co. The going price is $18.95, beats the $50.00 a box,I was paying on the internet. So far it only been the 20gr. load. Now looking for the 25gr. to compare at my sight in. Only selling 2 boxes per customer now, I hope that loosens up in the near future. Now waiting to see who is going bring out a beefer stock and the bull barrel.
