Default .17 sold,HORTON CROSSBOW sold

I thought I'd post this here, I wasn't getting much action in the guns classified section. Good deal for someone if they have the right gun they want to trade. Here's the link.

.17 Has way to much wind drift. Get a .204, flat out to 300 and only 11" drop on 400. I am so glad I got that over a .223 that most all have.

I was thinking more on the lines of plinking or shooting the close shots on rabits orP-Dogs with the .17 -I use a 22-250 for shots out to 500 yards.

I wouldnt mind having a .17, but persoanlly I'm not too hot on the HMR...
it looks fancy, and I hear it shoots pretty good,buta rimfire is a rimfire is a rimfire IMO and if I were going to put my time/resources in a .17 it would be a CF, something I could play around with and work some loads up for, I'd probably go with something like the .17 fireball


I little off topic but kind of neat...
theres a guy I work with once in a while on different jobs thats BIG into guns, reloading,wildcat rounds, and gun making... years ago when I was big into handloading myself I got into a pretty indepth discussion with him and he brought me a baggy with about 20 different wildcats in it that he had put together over the years, some kind of outragous that obviously wouldnt(and didnt) work too good, like a .22-250 necked down to .17... some were pretty ingenious, like a couple automatic pistol rounds necked down to .17-.22(with guns built for them)

the one that really stood out for me though was a .25 auto pistol round necked down to a .14 cal. bullet, before that I had never even heard of a .14cal. bullet, but they make them, they're .145 inch and weigh 12.5 gr.(I just dug one out and checked)

I wanted to builda gun setup for that roundbad(and still do) and I had pretty much everything planned... he had a gun built that was based off a pistol action and saideven thatwas super quite and super accurate out to around 100-150 yards, but I later researched and discovered that the .22mag rimfire and .25 auto have the same head dia. and the .25 willchamber in the .22mag action, I also found an outfit that did conversionsthatturnedthe .22mag boltinto a centerfire, andhe was going to help me get setup with all the dies and various stuff I needed to build it(he already had them)but kids, life, and everything else got in the way and I never did followed through with it...



I lost all that info over time but it would still be a neat little round to have, I doubt theres many of them around...

I'd like to chrono that round. I pushed my 22-250 to 4,400 fps once. It left a white vapor trail to the target. I was affraid of burning up my barrel sodid not do many. My 50 grn. V-Max moves alongpretty good and makes a nice pink mist when it hits lol
