Hi Guys, Just a quick one today. This is a look at the Anschutz RX22 Competition semi automatic 22. This is the Anschutz version of the ISSC MSR and it’s not simply rebranded.

Volquartsen Rimfire Rifles 22 WMR and 17 HMR Review

Volquartsen is well known for their aftermarket rimfire parts especially for the 10/22. VQ hammers, extended bolt handles, extended magazine releases, sears, safeties, bolt releases, extractors, and more are found on plenty of 10/22’s out there. At some point, you have to ask yourself, “why not just buy a complete Volquartsen rifle?”. Today, I wanted […]

Hornady Producing 17 WSM

I said I was going to stop the Rimfire posts while big game was in season, but just 1 more! Hornady has come out with a loading for 17 WSM. One of the main risks with 17 WSM ammo had been that it was only available from Winchester. Now with Hornady producing a 20 grain […]

17 WSM vs 17 HMR vs 22LR

17 HMR vs 17 WSM

17 WSM: Is the Rimfire Speed King Worth It? Designed and produced in 2002, the 17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire is pretty new in terms of cartridges, but there is an even newer kid on the block. The 17 Winchester Super Mag (WSM), has been in production since 2013 and is attempting to cut out a piece of the […]
