Have you guys heard about the .17 Winchester Super Magnum?
 
Winchester has announced its new .17 Super Magnum rimfire round. 20 grains at 3,000 feet per second. "shoots fairly flat out to 300 yards" It's made from a necked-down .22 nail gun blank which Winchester already makes boatloads of, so they say it should cost about the same as .17 HMR at ~$15/50 (or cheaper according to some sources I've seen). Savage will be coming out with the first rifles for this round.

Exciting stuff. Should be a fun varmint round.

I like that it's a rimfire. The .17 Fireball is a smoker of a round, but being centerfire, it's more expensive. I'm actually intrigued by this thing.

I'm semi-interested. Could be a fun tack-driver rifle...

...at least until Michael Bloomberg or Andrew Cuomo claim it can shoot down airplanes.

Dont believe it for a second. You have some breathing room with a decent governor, but never say never....

I think the new boogeyman is using a .22 to "take down the power grid" by shooting at transformers.

I'm actually nervous for the next election. The Democraps are already setting up for a big push to get him out of office. They moved from "recall" to "replace" right away.

It'll be interesting....

I'd like to see this in a Browning A-Bolt!
