Default So I bought a 17 wsm today

I didn't intend to buy one but for 180 bucks why not. So anyone who has one any advice on ammo or tricks to improve accuracy would be greatly appreciated. Has anyone switched stocks? I was looking at the Boyds tacticacool(?) The one that looks like a baby McMillan stock. I ordered hornady 20 and 25 grain ammo to test it out with.

Just remember that there is no .17 match or target ammo. Some .17's shoot some ammos better than others, it's just the luck of the draw.

We need more info than the caliber of the firearm you bought. It's like saying I bought a V8.
