Paul Workman is on a distinguished road

Based on the recovering availability (several suppliers at work), I'm guessing the 17 HM2 production is simply taking a back seat. At one time, ALL 22 rimfire was none to be had. Then, in order, the 22LR started becoming available, then the 17 WMR, then 22 short, then (believe it or not) 22 short and LR blanks. So, if that trend continues, the .17 HM2 and "snake shot" should be coming along - maybe by summer?

When .17 HM2 comes back on the shelves, I'd be ready to sell or trade it for a 17 WMR; MUCH more popular! But, right now you'd have to give that .17 HM2 away.
