Are you looking for arguably the best rimfire hunting rig available? Vudoo Gun Works announces .17 HM2 is now an available caliber in their legendary V22 bolt action. The Vudoo Gun Works V22 is very quickly becoming known as the go-to rimfire in matches and events around the country. If you attend a rimfire rifle match, the odds are very high; the top shooters are behind a V22. Competition is one thing, but what about hunting, now Vudoo has you covered.
“The dimensional similarities of traditional 22lr, which the V22 action has been designed around, made the .17HM2 a natural performer in our rifles. The addition of the .17 HM2 gives our customers access to a wide range of high-velocity projectiles to better suit a variety of sporting applications. The .17HM2 was developed by Hornady in 2004 to give varmint hunters a high-velocity rimfire cartridge that fits in standard rimfire length actions. With a selection of V-MAX® or NTX® bullets, the .17HM2 is capable of taking prairie dogs, coyote, and fox size game at ranges of up to 200 yards” From Vudoo Gun Works Press Release.
The best part is because the action is the same, this means any Remington 700 pattern stock or chassis will fit, and the trigger options are endless. The core of the rifle is a reliable 10 round magazine that fits any bottom metal compatible with AICS magazines.
Lothar Walther assisted with the development of the barrel for this offering and knowing the high standards set by Vudoo Gun Works; this will soon be known as the precision hunting rimfire rig to have.
Customers looking to purchase a Vudoo Gun Works rifle chambered in .17HM2 will enjoy using existing .22lr Vudoo magazines and the familiar feel and precision of the V22 action.
