    A few weeks ago I purchased a new Single Six in 17HMR. Boy, is it a fun! :D

    The Single Six for .22 comes with 2 cylinders, one for LR and the other for WMRs. Does anyone know if Ruger plans to make another cylinder available for the .17 Mach 2? Seems like this would be a logical addition.

    tleach; sir; I don't have an answer to your question. I am interested in your experiences with the .17. I am looking for one; feel like I'll have something to enjoy on long walk abouts.
    follow up when you can with your experiences.

    They did catalog a .17 hunter which had two cylinders. Only a very few were shipped before production stopped. I believe the issues had to do with the cases of the .17M2 splitting and I believe there were extraction issues also if I'm not mistaken. the bottleneck cases have had similar issues in previously made makes/models. I doubt you'll see it reintroduced with the .17M2 hype slowly dwindling as is it's interest.
