Need to find a copy of Dick Saunders’ book, “Seventeen Caliber Shooting”.

Been looking 😉
Hard one to find at a descent price 😎

Hi Bruce,

The closest one is the .17 GSG by Dick Saunders.

What is the body length, neck length and, if possible, shoulder angle?

Regards,

Fede

Body length .573"
Neck length .187"
Shoulder angle 56 degree

Thanks, based on the picture I think that your first measurement of 27º was correct and close to the 32º of the GSG, because 56º would indicate a much stepper shoulder. Case length is a little bit longer (.900’’ vs. .930’’) and body length is somewhat shorter (.573’’ vs. .640’’), but I’m still thinking that the closest match is the .17 GSG.
