Savage Arms trotted out a whole new stable of rifles in 2017. Among them is the B—meaning bolt action—Series 17 FV-SR, chambered in 17 HMR. We took it for a spin, curious to see if the company’s rimfire rifles perform as well as its big-bore models that have earned some real estate in my gun safe.
After seven years in development, Savage is proud to introduce the first modern reliable semiautomatic rifle chambered for .17 HMR. How did they do it? Watch this video to learn how. The new A17 semi-auto rifle from Savage Arms is chambered for the 17 HMR cartridge. MSRP is $465. The A17, Stock Number 47001, has a delayed-blowback action, hard chrome bolt, case-hardened receiver, and 10-round detachable rotary magazine.
The .17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire has been out for more than a decade. While it has not replaced .22s, it is a cartridge most would not like to be without. Read this post to discover why it is an excellent addition to your arsenal.

That is a serious varmint round in a rimfire cartridge no less. With the skyrocketing price of .223 everywhere, due to its many applications, a new varmint cartridge has come at the right time.
