  • @orkan Did any of the brass split in your test? I remember the Ruger you tried had some brass splitting problems. I haven’t sern any 17 hmr split in a while.

  • @bigfoot No split cases in this rifle as of yet.

  • Going to kick off a live stream on instagram @primalrights here in a few minutes.

    Time to stress test a Zermatt 17WSM action! Might as well do it live for you guys. ;)

  • @orkan
    I'm curious to know how the bore looked after 300 little screamers later.

  • @bigfoot I don't own a bore scope that can fit in a .17 bore diameter... but I shot it the next day, and was still holding 3/4MOA at 100yds! That was basically as good as that barrel was from the start.

  • @orkan
    That baby was smoking hot. What's the velocity, 3200fps? A 204 is advertised at 4200 I don't know what a 17 Remington is unless I look it up or a 17 Hornet. You could sit there and hammer sand puppies or whatever you call them all day with that rig. I wonder if you happened to have a copper fowled condition would you have a uh oh experience being it's a rimfire.

  • @bigfoot 17WSM runs a 20gr bullet at about 3000fps. The hornet will do that same 20gr at 3600fps. 17 Remington will do a 25gr at 4000fps quite easily.

  • We're close to having the first few 17WSM rifles ship. Today I was out working over a small pdog town with one of mine. Zapped 34 pdogs in about an hour! So fun! These rifles are what the 17WSM should always have had! Give me a call to get your 17WSM rifle reserved! 605-554-1911

    Stay tuned, as I'll be posting more pictures of these rifles as they get ready for shipping!



  • Super excited to hear about. Thanks for your perseverance.

  • One of my personal TS Customs 17WSM's back from Primal Finish for a Cerakote treatment in KUIU VIAS with some cookies 'n cream metal! Our 17WSM builds are rolling off the line at TS Customs. Be sure to call us to get yours reserved!


  • Dang, I may have to buy that one!! Very nice ..... What does it shoot like with and without the suppressor? Still a crack but more subtle I imagine. Any change in the group size?? It's a beauty! Tried a tuner on it yet to see if there is any change in the grouping. Rimfire can be so finicky lot to lot. And that ain't the whole of it .... I can only imagine what an absolute pleasurable, fun gun that must be to shoot. Hands down, it is what it is, and the person doing the firing has to do their best to have it perform its best. I wouldn't want to be a PD within 300 yards of that thing!

    No appreciable change in group size or POI. Quite loud without the can. These things bark.

  • What an excellent review of the Primal Rights/TS Customs Rimx 17WSM. It is right up my alley. I love the lack of the Krakatoa with the suppressor ..... just so annoyed with the process of the stamp. A friend has been waiting since Nov 2020, no stamp yet. Regardless, I love everything about the setup. For me, I'll take the bipod along with the quick connect attachment. ARCA mount and tripod maybe later. I've watched and read your report on cleaning the 22lr, any thoughts on the 17WSM yet. I think in a past post you mentioned something about maybe 500 rounds. All in all, thank you Greg for the time, your research/testing of components, and your overall interests and love of firearms to include rimfire.

  • I'm excited about this bolt action 17WSM. I had a Volquartsen 17WSM Semi-Auto that shot exceptional, but for the most part, I disdain semi-auto's. Scott was kind enough to let me return it to him. I'm hoping to see equal 100 yard results from the RimX. These are seven shots at 100 yds with the Volquartsen shooting 25gr. The first 5 shots went dime size, the next 2 shots were for zeroing.

  • Greg's RimX 17WSM is a rifle any serious rimfire owner should own. Masterfully composed, ideal for field or truck shooting, and an easy critter ridder out to 250 yards with a 10 power scope.
    This is a photo of 5 shots at each target of 25gr out to 100 yards by two separate shooters. The rifle had only about 30 bullets passed down the barrel at this shooting. Think of how much better it will be after 300 or so rounds. It's a rifle that should be proudly owned!


  • @buddhaman Great to hear from you again! Hope things are getting better in Houma land!

  • @shakeyhand been here in Louisiana so long my hair has turned white. Love it in so many ways, but alas, my wife and I are considering moving. We suffered zero loss, amazing. Our homeowners insurance, though, prior to the storm has been $5000 annually. We fret to see how much more they want to increase it by due to this storm. Property taxes in my view for a $260,000 home is over $1700 ...... local and state sales tax is 10%. Add all that up and I could use that money to fly down and eat shrimp, crabs, oysters, fish, crawfish all year round. Sold my boat the other day and told my wife that I'll be just as happy to go back to my old ways of roadside fishing. Anyway, that new RimX 17WSM is a hoot to shoot. I've got Greg working on a field/hunting 22BR Improved and a target 22BR Improved. The 22's will be a nice time to spend working on a load for both rifles.
    I'd like to consider Texas as a place to live. The options are endless, but I can assure you that I'm not interested in the cities. The little town of Leona cooks steaks on Friday and Saturday night at the general store .... the townsfolk contribute their time and effort to the cause. Something along those lines would interest me. And I would enjoy the opportunity to live situated in an area where landowners would like their pesky critters removed.
    My wife and I don't have to act on anything soon ... we can surely wait 2-3 years ..... her Mother lives with us and is 90. But then again, 2-3 years down the road as we age, we may be reading a whole new story. Regardless, thank you for kindly checking in on us. I believe in the goodness of America and the kindness of the human spirit.
