Winchester .17 HMR

Hey to all just a heads up. Bought myself a new Henry Varmint Express in the 17HMR. Picked it up at Bass Pro, as I was already there and had a $10 coupon I picked up some Winchester 17HMR ammo.

Well to say the very least, I was not happy. Had three misfires in 25 rounds. All three round were "struck" and did not fire. Also cause two jams in the receiver, which I believe may be because of a slight difference in case/head measurement.

Anyway, just wanted to throw out one guys experience, I have written Winchester, but no response as yet. stay safe out there. CSM-H

Have not used Winchester but successfully killed a number of prairie dogs Friday using Hornady .17, it was friends rifle. I think they were V-Max's.

Winchester Varmint HV

Winchester contacted me today, they want all the numbers of the box (which I had to put in the e-mail I sent) and then want me to send them what is left. Will reimburse me "one box".... glad I didn't fire more!!
