    finally decided to have a .17hmr threaded.

    Questions are:
    1)what length barrel is everyone using?
    2) who threaded it for you? Preferably around Roswell/Alpharetta area.

    The barrel will be a cz455 varmint barrel that is currently 20.5”

    With the velocity of a 17 HMR I wonder how quiet it will actually be? Maybe the sound of a 22 long rifle unsuppressed??

    Suppressed my 17 HMR sounded exactly the same as my 5.56 and 308 suppressed. You are only hearing the sonic crack. So yeah, about like a 22.

    What length barrel do you have? I may just go to 16.5”. Seems like velocity would take a ~150fps hit but not sure if that will matter.
