Wheelgun Wednesday: Taurus M17 Tracker .17 HMR Review

It is Wednesday again and if you are in search of wheelguns you have come to the right place! Last week we took a look at the rather thunderous Raging Hunter .44 Magnum from Taurus so this week we are going to go in a completely different direction, and check out something that is a near polar opposite as far as caliber goes. Our latest trip to the gun range involved the Taurus M17 Tracker .17 HMR (Hornady Magnum Rimfire) for some zippy, rimfire fun. Not many companies chamber the .17 HMR cartridge in a revolver anymore so we wanted to see what the M17 Tracker was all about and how it stacks up with other revolvers from Taurus and similar ones in the firearm industry as a whole. Let’s dive in and review the Taurus M17 Tracker .17 HMR!
