Have one on my Lithgow 17HMR and are very happy with it. Light, durable and the dog certainly appreciates it when shooting over him.

Cheers,
JaSa

It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler

yes Paul a friend I go shooting with a couple of times a year has a 17wmr and it is quite pleasant to be around when can is in place and rather unpleasant when its not.....
I own one of Darrens cans it sits on my poohseventy and its great.....cant say/see if its any better or worse than the gunworks spartans I also use,shorter and fatter yes pokes off end of barrel about 3/4" less yes but what little weight there is sits slightly further forward as its shorter overall so next to no difference in carry feel either.
you COULD use a DPT on bigger rifle and stick same can on 17 when needed so get double the advantage.....maybe just swap end baffle and cap???

I have used both gunworks and dpt on my 17hmr. To my supprise the dpt was quieter I didn't think it would be because it was smaller in diameter. But to be fair the gunworks the gunworks can was for a 22mag. I think you won't go wrong with the dpt.

Not a major. Seeing him no doubt at the SS shortly and will buy 2 more stainless baffles which we will run 2 at a time on the 223 can.Should ask him if the 223 can could be adapted for an o/b can on the 17. Wink
