I remember seeing a little North American Arms handgun in that caliber. Wonder how it shot?

Thanks for the education. I was not aware of the difference.

I watched several of the U-tube Videos you posted. 

Have you had any problems with split cases? 

Savage rifles sure didn't get any recommendations from the video's I watched.  Sorta makes it a gamble when purchasing a Savage .17 WSM chambered gun, at least according to those U-tube reports.

That sounds great.  Checking the introduction date for the .17 WSM, showed it was introduced in 2012, which certainly provides time for some tweaking of the rifles and/or cartridges both. 

In all honesty none of the various .17 cartridges every really interested me that much, primarily because they were rimfire cartridges.  On the other hand I have never met a gun I didn't like.  Some I would like to have, but just don't care to pay for one.  

I am old enough to remember the introduction of the .22 Winchester Mag and a number of other super duper cartridges which were to be the newest & greatest cartridge of all times.  In some cases those newest cartridges could not be found with a microscope, or they were so few in numbers their prices were higher than a cats back in very short order.  The Remington 5mm was one of those cartridges which disappeared completely.  The rifles manufactured in 5mm Remington were discontinued about 1974, after being introduced in 1969.  The 5mm ammo completely dried up by the early to mid 80's for the most part.  Then about 2008 the 5mm Remington ammo began to be manufacture by Aguila first if I remember correctly, then possibly others, and then ceased production about April 2016.  I am not sure if any others are still producing the 5mm now or not, but the supplies will soon dry up again if someone is not still producing the 5mm.  

There were center fire cartridges which have suffered similar fates, although none have ceased production completely to my knowledge, but the ammo is sky high and produced in short batches, but for how much longer is anyone's guess. 

Having seen all of this in my lifetime, I have serious reservations about purchasing the flavor of the week today, but back in 1970 the local hardware where I grew up had one of the Remington clip fed bolt action rifles and the 5mm ammo on display.  I wanted one so badly back then, but the way things turned out, I am fortunate not to have received one and then experienced what I am certain would have been a tremendous disappointment the way thing turned out with the 5mm.  That probably has influenced my doubt regarding the various .17 rimfire cartridges more than anything, but the .22 S-L-LR crisis has not endeared me to any rimfire guns, considering their usefulness and abundance. 

I have no doubt any of the various rimfires, can produce much enjoyment and excitement out on the range or prairie either one.  But since the nearest prairie for me would be several hundred miles, that is a pretty null option for me.  None-the-less, Scott you almost arouse an old desire that reaches all the way back to 1970 and that old Remington 5mm rifle & cartridge combination.

My wording may not have correctly conveyed my sentiments.  I have always like the .22 rimfire ammunition and the guns which chamber it.  They fill a void hard to be replaced, by anything else, but the .22 rimfire "Crisis" has made me reconsider the rimfire cartridges.  If, I could replace the rimfires with a suitable center fire cartridge of comparable performance, I probably would.  I know many people who were working in that direction, but I do not know of anyone who achieved the level of success in replacing the rimfire cartridges they desired.  It is a task which is most difficult to accomplish, regardless of one's desire. 

Rimfire ammo is now back to a reasonable cost and fairly commonly found here at least, but in the back of most our minds is the nagging question:  When will it disappear again?  Possibly never, I certainly hope so.

How many 22 did you go through in the crisis ? What was the use ? Ammo never really disappeared there was always someone willing to sell . Also I had no trouble ever getting some flavor of rimfire from gun stores and there are alternatives . There’s more places that sell rimfire ammo here in town then that sel bulkets and primers . I never had a single problem getting 17 super at any Walmart in the “crisis “ and it offers incredible performance on its weight has some other unique advantages its in a class on its own and no time spent reloading for something that is heavier per round
