Sgt5 , there is a lot of Info on Saubier . You have to go to the General Discussion Section on Forums and Search for recent " Shot Show " Info . Somewhere in there were pictures of the Ammo ( I think only the Box ) & prototype Rugers , etc . Try the following : http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/model/25+lvt . Also try http://www.hornady.com/store/17-hornet-dieset/ . When you go to the Savage Site , Click on Firearms , then Gunfinder , then Caliber , then 17 Hornet & it will show you the available Models & MSRP . Luck !

I would rather have the Ruger also but from what I hear we have to wait even longer,I am considering a Ruger in 22 Hornet and a barrel change to the 17 Hornet.

All due apologies to any who like their Ruger Hornet, but that's the one gun I'd avoid. A converted rimfire with a two-piece bolt and a too-short magazine is three strikes and out, in my opinion.

I'd wait for a Browning or a Savage or a CZ - in that order of preference.

Actually Rocky... that's good info...

what would a 17 KHornet give us that one could not accomplish with a like loaded 17 Fireball...

I only ask, as I always keep thinking of ordering a 17 Barrel for a fireball...Green Mountain barrel blank maybe..

to put either on a Ruger 77 or Model 70 SA..

The .17 Hornet quite honestly just gives us the last picket in the sensible .17-cal fence. We now have the .17 M2, the .17 HMR, the .17 Hornet, the .17 Fireball, and the original .17 Rem. The last one of those (and the first one introduced commercially) is arguably overbore for that bore size, based on its propensity to foul bores and its often quirky pressure curves. Nothing bigger makes any sense.

The only other missing case size that could go commercial would be the .17 Bee, and I doubt that will ever happen.
