I don’t know about you but I am excited about the .17 Winchester Super Mag which should be reaching shelves here at the end of May. So far two rifles have been announced for the cartridge but I’m hoping for some variation. Savage and Winchester will both be following suit but the Winchester will obviously be pricier and have an older rifle look similar to a Ruger No. 1 Rifle. The Savage B Mag reminds me of a Ruger American Rifle with a unique bolt look. The Savage is slated to have a MSRP of $349 but I think street price will be around $300.00. There’s not a heck of a lot of information out for the Winchester rifle that will be produced. I suggest you read some of the data on the round itself and look at its performance over the current .17HMR and .22WMR. I have several firearms in .17HMR and they are really a blast to shoot and very accurate compared to 22LR.
