Finally bought a 17HMR (brand new) and put it through its paces at the range yesterday.
It's the 16 inch barrel version and was shooting CCI TNT hollow point at 100yrds.
10 shots bench rest were giving a 2 inch group. Slight wind but the group was quite evenly spread across the 2 inch circle.
I wasn't trying too hard so might be able to trim it in but don't imagine by much.
To be honest I was pretty horrified at this as I can shoot my centre rifles (Sauers & Steyrs) into clover leaf groups all day long.
Am I expecting too much or is this about it for a 17HMR?
