I agree with dangerranger on his account.
My other observation is with HMR I tend to need ear plugs if I am going to fire alot.The HM2 is less in the noise dept.Like others I buy and keep up with stocking the rounds
I love mine when cottontail rabbits is open.
I have not had any split cases,but am glad it has been brought to our attention if it is a problem.
That whole deal with the Remington 597 17HMRs blowing to crap a few years back,makes me wonder about that ammo.I had seen Hornady come out with some kind of a disclaimer at the time.I had a good friend really get hurt when the bottom of the gun blew out.Remington ate the cost of the gun with a voucher for a new type of rifle,but the ammo manuf was never heard from.
