Wow you narrowed me down to being one of about 4 million users. Great work. Or have you never heard of a proxy network? So, not so "scary".
BTW I certainly wouldn't say a .17HMR is more effective than a .17HM2. It's not as popular but that has more to do with marketing than anything IMO. I would buy an HM2 if I didn't think it would be obsolete because of ammo supplies in a few years. From everything I've read in comparison tests it is the better round.
