    I believe the original intent of that warning was with handgun loads intended for use in revolvers with barrel/cylinder gaps.

    A 12 or even a 14" twist might be a better choice, especially if cast bullets are on the menus. The 173rd" twist will stabilize the 311299 at 30-30 velocities. A12" twist was standard for Winchesters.

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    Can you seat the bullets out to engage the rifling (leade)? Do you have and medium burning powders such as RL7, 3031, 4895, etc?

    The headspace of the cartridge is considerably shorter than the chamber headspace. With the CRF M96 the case is probably headspacing on the extractor. Fire forming the cases to the chamber will eliminate the problem. There are ways to do that w/o...

    That is a cleaning issue not a normal barrel wear issue.

    Most of the issues are with the semi-auto's. I have Sako Quads, CZ 452 and Contenders in 17M2 and the Magnum Research in a Semi-Auto. Neck and shoulder cracks are more common than with the 17HMR but in either they are not a problem or a safety...

    Your friend is giving you bad advice. Rimfire's erode from the glass beads in the priming compound. With a borescope you can see it at about 20,000 rounds. On target rifles 50,000 rounds without loss is not unusual. I know of one range rental...

    One of the main issues with the early 17M2 in semi-auto's are dirty chambers. Later some of the manufacture oversized the chambers to limit this issue than cracked neck and shoulders became an issue. I have one of the first Magnum Research 17M2's....
