Thread: .17 Hornet Ammo availability

    .17 Hornet Ammo availability

    I'm pretty dead set on getting a .17 Hornet. The only thing stopping me is the availability or not of factory ammo. I could reload but it won't be until I can afford the gear, so 2016 at the earliest.

    Have any of you guys that own them experienced much trouble laying your hand on factory rounds?

    Cheers in advance

    Back in February I had to wait two weeks for my local gunshop to get some in, other than that I've had no problem.

    I've not had a problem, Edgars seem to have a good supply.

    Not had much of a problem either, certainly not compared to some other rounds like 7mm-08.

    The reason we reload is the cost..... Factory ammo about 85 per 100 . Home load work out to 30p each.

    Thanks guys.
    I have stuck my variation in so looking forward to it now
    Most of my ammo is paid by the estate so cost not too important this year.
    It can be a nice winter project getting my reloading gear together
