Can I use the new 17HMR caliber ammunition in my standard Model 700 17 caliber rifle?

Overview

No.

 

The 17HMR is a rimfire cartridge and is chambered for specific rimfire rifles. It ignites by the firing pin hitting the rim of the cartridge. This ammunition is NOT interchangeable with the .17 caliber centerfire rifle where the firing pin will contact the center of the cartridge for ignition. Always be sure to check any ammunition for correct caliber or gauge before using in your firearms.
