There are more .17 wildcats than politician's lies (not really, but it's close enough). There are also several websites devoted to such things, like this one, and www.saubier.com, and others I won't mention here, but you could google 'em up easily enough. I doubt anyone has a handle on all of the .17 case squishing and reforming, trimming and chopping, that goes on with them. I started looking seriously into them after the HMR came out, and I can't keep up. Good luck on searching them out, there's some very interesting reading to do on the subject. There is even a magazine for smaller bores, Small Caliber News, who has some of it's writers amongst our own here. Be careful, it's like a black hole in space, it'll suck you in.....

.17 madness

Yep.... Glenn is right on it being a black hole ...both in money and time tinkering with new .17 wild cats....4 years ago I bought my 1 st .17 HMR
as of today ..I have 2 ..17 mach 4s..a 17 Ackley Hornet..a 17 Remington and 4 more 17 HMR rifles...oh I forgot the 17 mach 2 Marlin VS.

As Glenn said... check on www.Saubier.com for 17 Preditor info...the guys will have info for you........ Eric

The difference between the .17P and the .17/223 is capacity. Someone with a better handle on the capacity of the .223 than I will have to chime in with some numbers. But the .17P definitely has more capacity and will achieve higher velocities than the .17/223. I belive the .17/223 is probably closer to the .17 Rem. in capacity, while the .17P is closer to the .17 PPC.
