if its bolt action then it is NPB. probably cos its smaller than 22 , they might even allow it in semiauto.

@SanSyed, .17 is not a prohibited bore, actually i own .17 mach2 and .17HMR. These are on my NPB licences. .17 is the newest rimfire bore with some very interesting capabilities. Its very small 17 grain pallet has the muzzle velocity of more than 2200m/s, that is twice the speed of sound. Its tragectory is almost flat. More and more people are turning to this bore for varmint control(.17 mach2) and small game hunting(.17 HMR) because of their excellent accuracy and ballistics.

.17 is nice but very loud. It is essentially a varmint round for gophers, prairie dogs an other such rodents, which weigh less than 5 pounds. Most professional pest controllers in the West prefer a moderated (silencer equipped) 22LR rifle with 40 grain subsonic ammo.

Whats the ammo pricing for .17HMR and .17Mach2? Plus, what guns are available in Pakistan in this caliber?

The .17HMR can make a fine target rifle with its flat trajectory, and better range compared to the heavier .22s

.17 ammo is expensive as compared to .22. I bought .17HMR winchester at Rs. 50 and .17 Mach2 Eley Rs. 32. This thing make this fine caliber unsuitable for target shooting, as .22 is available at 1/3rd price.
Finest, Anschutz, sako and CZ are available in Lahore in .17Mach2. I haven't seen any 17HMR at any shop for quite sometime in LAHORE.

@Tareenand Usman, I bought this rifle 1-1/2 year back for 190K. This rifle is not available in the market currently(as far as i know in Laore) so, have no idea what will be the current price.

Thanks Hasan bhai..

The 190K is kinda steep for a rimfire.. but basically its a 4-in-1 rifle then more then worth the price

.17 is roughly 4.5mm equilvalent to an air gun pallet, though a little heavier and longer than the pallet. An airgun pallet is propelled by the release of compressed air, where as .17 HMR / Mach2 is propelled by the expanding gases resulting from the burning gun powedr like in a firearm.

These bullets usually weigh 17 or 20 grains and reach up to 2550 fps. they are flat shooters upto 150 meters, and bullet drop is usually 3~4 inches for 17 grain and 8~9 inches for 20 grain.

This is a varminter round meant for squirrels etc. or for punching paper targets.
