Savage A17 Semi Auto .17HMR

    Savage is coming out with a semi-auto 17 HMR rifle called the A17.

    According to Savage’s video, the problem with an auto loader rimfire is timing when dealing with higher pressure magnum loads like the 17HMR. Savage solved this by using a delayed blowback bolt to handle the pressure of the 17HMR and reliably cycling the action.

    I hope they offer one with a threaded barrel and hoping they expand to other rimfire calibers like 22WMR and 17WSM in semi-auto.
