My name is Drew, about a month ago I purchased my first Ruger. (Ruger American .17hmr) I am new to Ruger, and new to .17 HMR as a varmint round. I am not new to weaponry or hunting and have been accustomed to .22 for small game and .223 for larger varmint applications. I've put approximately 500 rounds through my Ruger American and due to retiring my dad's Nylon 66 I'm realizing my knowledge of .22's is a bit antiquated. I'm more than thrilled with the accuracy of my .17 and am looking to ruger for a .22 and to this forum for other .17 enthusiasts.
