ID:	26829. This is what to look out for when that .17 HMR doesn't sound right. This is what we found when a friend of mine was using a .17 saturday night. He nearly chambered another round when i grabbed his hand and said, wait, i had one blow up my gun.

    When this happened to me last year the importer paid for a new Gun, with the fantastic help from the GUNROOM IVYBRIDGE
    Lets wait for the post that someone has been seriously hurt with these rounds woodfordfallow

    happened to me on Thursday. I didn't hear the difference and tried to cycle the bolt as I thought I had missed the rabbit. luckily the round was stuck far enough back that the next bullet hit it and my bolt wouldn't close.

    Don't think it matters which ammo it is. If the HMR goes click for any reason, even if you know there was no cartridge in there,
    STOP, REMOVE BOLT, SHINE TORCH DOWN BARREL, (most of my shooting is done at night) AND MAKE SURE IT IS CLEAR.
    I still have my old stock with a very large hole in it to remember.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    If you have any Remington 17 HMR ammunition that you wish to return to Remington contact the Remington Consumer Service number below. Do not return the ammunition to the dealer. Remington will provide you with a $10.00 coupon for each complete box of 50 rounds of Remington branded 17 HMR ammunition you return to Remington. This coupon will be good for the purchase of any Remington ammunition at your local dealer.
    WILL a uk dealer take hornady back ! if so i have 700 to send back
