A 3,000 FPS rimfire! Could be interesting in a Savage rifle for bobcats, fox and yotes... http://youtu.be/_fefxmaWMNQ Article... http://www.shootingwire.com/story/276438...

Interesting. Sounds similar to the FN 5.7mm round.

Neat but I'd rather have a .17 Remington. .223 necked down to .17. Exceeds 4,000 fps

I suppose that it will be cheaper to buy loaded ammo than the centerfire 17/20/22 calibers, but you won't be able to handload it.

Doesn't seem like a good trade to me.

Personally, if I want better performance than .22 lr, then I'll step up to a centerfire round such as the .204 ruger.
