Default 17 hornet, a gophers worst nightmare

Picked myself up a 17 Hornet about a month ago and man, so fun. Loaded up some rounds and have been playing with some different bullets and powders to get it perfect but wow is it ever devastating to gophers. I love it. ZERO recoil and you can watch em explode through the scope at over 200 yards. Now I just need to find some more brass. Hornady has said they are releasing some late summer however I'm not holding my breath.. What a fun gun to shoot though..... Think I may take it our for coyotes this upcoming winter and see how it does. Looks like my 22.250 will have a buddy this winter!

Very few options as far as brass goes. Last I looked, I believe it was only Hornady that offered brass for that gun.
