Well couldn't leave well enough alone after barrel change to .17 hmr so put her into a MDT LSS- RF chassis, give her a test run tomorrow.

Had to save your photo and rotate it to get a nice view (your photo was upside down on my monitor).

Very interesting, not my taste but looks like nice quality hardware. IMO would be over the top in .22LR but .17...makes more sense.

Let us know how it shoots.

Not sure why the pic was upside down, anyway shot 6 5 shot groups that averaged just over 1/4 inch at 50 yards, pretty pleased with that.

Very nice.

The .17HMR is my favorite all around cartridge.

Kills all out of proportion to its paper ballistics.
Some will die in hot pursuit in fiery auto crashes.
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes.
Some will fall in love with life, and drink it from a fountain, that's pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain.
