you know bzzrd i was just talking to justin today about this very thing.i was told he would call monday and get me some info.when i get a update you will to, good enough? oh ya what's up with the blah blah blah......

I think the blah is this week and the other is next month or later. You obviously are being fed Male Bovine Fecal Matter and eating it up. I'd love to see grn hmr ammo but the facts are it doesn't exist. If it was forthcoming they would have made a big deal of it at the shot show. I don't see Justin @ oleboy chiming in here?? Hornady may be trying to figure out a bullet. I'll be surprised if it happens this year, maybe next, maybe. Hope I'm wrong

Looks like CCI could just form a piece of copper wire, like the 22 TNT green, put a dimple in the nose and say it has explosive expansion and put it on the market. That's the way I see the TNT green.

If you want things blowing to tiny pieces the 22 mag no doubt, if you want a challenge at long distances get the 17 HMR. Shooting wise nothing makes me smile more than hitting a varmint at 150 yards with a 17 HMR in windy conditions. I love my semi auto 17 hmr to death.

.17 is flatter but subject to wind change past 100 yards. .17 hits REALLY hard, but does not come in lead free yet ;) .22 mag does...
