    Yes and Remington will only give you a $200 credit towards a new gun from them.
    Googgle it and you will see how many owners are Pd off with Remington over this .17HMR issue. They have lost tons of Remington customers and dont care.

    Not to my knowledge but there has been some problems with people trying to use them for 22wmr instead of 17 supposably. Haven't tried to see if they will even go in the chamber. I haven't been able to get them in the past couple of years and sold my last 22mwr last week and can't get anymore. Jackie B.

    Saw a Remington ad asking both the guns and the Remington branded 17 ammo to be turned in for refund. Price of refund is a bit of an insult.

    Damn right the refund amount is an insult. So much for standing behind your defective product.

    Their price for 17 HMR is more than $10.00 a box, what's up with that? Just curious what was the gun selling for?

    I own a Marlin 17HMR bolt action and it's a fun gun to shoot. Can't hunt with an 17 auto here in PA.

    Why is it dangerous? Is the gun dangerous or the ammo dangerous? HMB

    Remington has chosen profit over quality. They could care less if your a lifelong customer or first time customer. I bought a new SPS rifle, that would group 8" @ 100 yards. After trying different ammo I went to a smith friend who examined the rifle ad determined the headspacing was off a mile ( I don't remember how muck now). I called Remington numerous times, before I spoke to the district rep for my area. His response was, "You bought a mass produced rifle, it will not shoot like a custom built benchrest model" I told him I would like to return my rifle to them and have the problem corrected. I also mentioned I owned a H&R in the same caliber that would group 1-1.5" @ 200 yards,and expected that or better from the SPS. His response..."Shoot the H&R". Good advise I thought. To H%ll with Remington, their Mexican plants, and terrible customer service, sold the SPS and still shooting the 25 year old H&R.
