So you've convinced me to pick up a .17 HMR. What are your thoughts on the CZ 452 Varmint .17 HMR?http://www.cz-usa.co...detail.php?id=2

Great gun. Nicer wood than the others. Accurate. Cheap $15 trigger fix from Brookies, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the hmr's, it is a fun little caliber. jmho dale

I agree with bzzrd feedr on this one. CZ makes a great product and with the adjustable trigger it's a nice gun. Like Dale said I know there was a cheap fix from Brookies but I don't know if that is still required or not? I don't think you'd regret purchasing the CZ.

That's great and I'm glad you're happy with it. It will shoot even better after you get 3-400 rounds down the tube. Don't get to carried away about brands of ammo cause it's all loaded by CCI and all the v-max bullets are from Hornady. Speer (sister company of CCI and Federal) make the rest of the bullets offered. I've tried them all and it seems to be more of a lot # rather than who's brand. I've found that the Speer bullets have a different POI. JMHO Dale

Those CZ's are growing on me. Might make one my calling gun in 223.

OH MY GOD! :P Mr Mister and .223 in the same sentence. ;)

I don't like the Remington loads. The Hornady V-Max seem the best to me.

Other than the color of the poly tip and a case stamp, the Rem. Hornady, etc are all the same.

When it comes to 17 HMR rifles there is one you may want to consider.VQ Deluxe 17 HMR Semi Auto. It's the best of the best in my opinion.Posted Image
Bullets are pretty worthless. All they do is hang around waiting to get loaded.

Capitol I agree for an autoloader the VQ is a great gun but they are lots of moola$. I've got a Std. w/Hogue stock that I've shot over 4000 rds. thru. Had a problem w/the cases blowing out, sent it back to VQ and it came back with a new and improved bolt at no cost. NOTE make sure you wear eye protection especially with an autoloader) I also have a Fusion switch barrel that I'm beginning to like more and more. The newest VQ in my safe is a Predator Pistol that is a great window shooter and I can't believe how accurate it is w/a 12" barrel.

My Contender has a 14 inch barrel, but I think it's more accurate than my rifle! :P It really likes the 20 grain XTP's which isn't the perfect dirt squirrel round. But I've shot a couple of clover leaf groups with it at 50 yards so it goes where I point it. ;)
