Have a coworker thats a gun dealer and I think I've got me one preordered already!!
Dang it, a new caliber. I am a caliber junkie so this is not good news. Maybe I can ignore the cravings, maybe not. I saw some nice pics and an article in Guns & Ammo as well. I am getting the shakes....

When are the guns coming?
Too bad with the nice new 8 round rotary mag....those guns are illegal in NY thanks to the idiot Cuomo....oh well.
I had the same reaction, but then I'm not sure what the typical costs for .17 cal are, nor what conditions that caliber would be better than say .22wmr, .22hornet, 222/223, 22-250, etc.
I'm not a .17 fan, but probably because I load my own 3000fps 34gr sub-MOA 22 Hornet load for less than a dime each. If I was not a loader it might be tempting, although I've found 22mag to also shoot tiny groups well past 100meters/yards, at least out of the ones I own.
I agree with Tim Lee to a point. I am able to do what this round will accomplish with my CZ 221 Fireball. I could see this going well with non reloaders though.
I sold my HMR rifle after being disappointed with killing power on jackrabbit size game and up. I think the 22 Mag was better in some ways.
Tim Lee you have the title to my favorite Waylon song at the bottom there. Two thumbs up from a huge Waylon Jennings fan!
