Thread: A new 17hmr

    A new 17hmr

    What's your thought after a new 17hmr, I have been refusing to go down this route for rabbit shooting. Finally going to get one 16" or 20" barrel? the CZ seems a good rifle in .22rf.

    Hi mate,

    CZ rimfire rifles are great out of the box for accuracy and value for money, you won't get a more accurate factory rimfire rifle.

    id get a 16 inch barrel one, the extra 4 inch with the 20 will only gain you approx 50-100 ftps max from my experiences and not worth worrying about and will offer you no advantage in the field.

    16 or 20 inch barrel will both work fine, down to choose really mate.

    let us know what you decide mate?

    I have a Savage BVSS Savage Arms which I am selling, it has a 4-12 illuminated Leupold VXR on it with the ballistic firedog ret, Leupold VX-R 4-12x50 Rifle Scope | Uttings.co.uk nice rifle, shoots half inch at 100 yds with the hornaday ammo. I have hardly used it since I got the .20 Vartarg. I have a mate who has first dibs on it, but if he doesn't want it you could have the whole package including mod for 750 which is a bargain. The scope is great BTW....

    definitely go for the 16 inch barrel. I bought mine new with a 20 inch and with a mod on too it's the best part of 26 inches long. I was forever hitting it on low branches or it was brushing through the grass while carrying it and as for using it to shoot from a truck, what a pain. Mine is currently getting chopped to 16 and as mentioned above (and the article in one of the shooting mags) you'll lose about 50fps which is nothing really.

    I crono'd my own 16inch CZ HMR against my pals rifle with the 20 inch barrle fitted.

    There was about 30 - 50 fps difference. Actually there was more difference between the shot to shot consistancy of bullets in each rifle due the quality of the ammo , than there was due to length of tube.


    Go 16 inch IME

    the difference between mine and my mates 16 -20 inch was 40-70 ftps, like you said Alan there was a lot more difference between shot to shot consistency due to ammo quality then the barrel length, dead right there.

    my CZ .22Lr I went 16 inch.

    Deffinately shorter barrel, especially in and out of truck etc...

    it have a CZ and my mate has a anschutz, the CZ is spot on accuracy and a nice feel too it. However the anschutz is streets ahead, like comparing an escort to a BMW, the trigger, bolt and general feel is streets ahead. Only problem is they are nearly twice the price. Does it shoot better, only just but my CZ groups at an inch.

    yes the Anschutz is better quality and probably has a slicker feel, like you said it's twice the price, so it wants to be. All the CZ needs is a 15 trigger kit to transform the trigger, I'd argue that the Anschutz wouldn't shoot any better, just because it's slicker or dearer though, CZ's are very accurate guns.

    CZ it is then

    It's looking very much like the CZ with 16" barrel and the thumb hole stock.
