Savage 93R17

17 HMR only, is on the barrel. Why do I have to shoot 17 HMR ammo? I thought as long as it is 17 caliber ammo I would be good to go? I'm not complaining, just wondering why. Or am I not understanding? Ammo is a little pricey, I knew that from the beginning. I had to order ammo on line, can't find any in my area. Thanks

The .17 HMR cartridge is based on the .22 Magnum case... the other .17s are the HM2 (much smaller case) and the WSM (much larger case). They simply won't fit the chamber of your rifle.

Any brand of .17 HMR ammo will be fine in your rifle, ie Hornady, CCI, Federal, Winchester.

A good rule of thumb is to never try to shoot ammo through a gun not designed for it.

I know, this is why I asked. I should have researched this on my own before asking a dumb question.
