I think without really looking it up it appears to be a .17 Squirrel. Maybe A17 Shooter will chime in and set the record straight.Ok I went and looked and I'm pretty sure my guess was correct.Attached File  17calibers.jpg   25.07KB   71 downloads

Wow - thats a cool little round. A quick search shows that this is a 22 Hornet case, shortened and re-chambered to .17From what i read it is not an easy re-forming process, but I'd love to shoot that round.

 If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
