Thanks Travis. Best thing I ever did and damn will it shoot. Perfect action size, perfect hunting trigger, and perfect carbon fiber stock. Have I mentioned that I really like this rifle? whistle

Back in the mid to late 70's Fox skins in Australia were worth as much $40 each (a lot of money back then) Today they are pretty much worthless. The pic was taken on a 1999 hunt when my cousin and I shot 60 Foxes in 4 nights (16,24,10 and 10) I became a .17 Remington devotee after that hunting trip.

A wash in the west.
I've had a .17 Remington since the early 80's. It's a tad overbore. I'm waiting for my 17/222 reamer.

Actually, no, a bit less capacity that the 17 Rem, but same performance.

My first foray into 17 land was the 17 Duece.

Also worth mentioning is that Chelsea will eventually look like Hillary.
I for one can't imagine any amount of money making that mountain worth climbing.

We lost a good one when Blaine left us.

I only met him a few times, he was one of the "Good Guys". He offered to take me hunting in Utah , and I kick myself in the azz for now taking him up on it.

Anyways, I am a big fan of the 17's too.

This one is a CZ with a #3 Pacnor barrel in 17 Mach IV

[Linked Image]

And this rascal is also a CZ but with a #2 Shilen in 17 Rem..

[Linked Image]

I just had a CZ527 Varmint punched out to 17-204 so I could push 30 gr bullets at 4K or better. Going to try it out in AZ in a couple of weeks.

I really liked reading all of Blaine's articles in the Small Caliber News and few others magazines. I also have his video.

It was a shame to see his wife troubles and then his death.

I was hoping he was going to get the .14 and .12 calibers going.

I always used the 25g hornady HP over benchmark at about 4000fps and it was instant death on everything. I tried the 20g vmax at 4400 fps for a while but it didn't penetrate nearly as good and didn't kill as well as the 25 hp. I have several boxes of 25g vmaxes but didn't get around to trying them before someone talked me out of my 17. I need to dig them out and list em I guess.
