Just last night I horse traded into a new Ruger American in 17HMR. I have never been a big fan of anything in 17 caliber. Always heard that they were finicky and took extra care in cleaning in order to function properly. I also got a brick of 17 grain Hornady V-Max ammo in the deal so I guess I'll give it a chance to grow on me.
Any opinions on the rifle? How 'bout the cartridge?
