I have many people ask me about the accuracy of my M17 from K&M . Well hear we go! I have had my M17 for around 6 months now and have put around 950 down the pipe. Wasn't sure how I liked it at first but over time the gun really grows on you. Right now I have her shooting sub 1 inch groups at 100 yards . The setup I am using the pup of course with a Leupold VX-R 2-7 x33 with fire dot 4 ret. shooting my hand loads of 52 gr. bthp with 27.5 gr. of 4320. I am not having any problem of ringing a 4 in. gong at 300 yards to me that is a very accurate rifle. She will do anything my favorite M4 will do and in a very short package. I really love my M4 it has always been my go to rifle but if the pup continues to be dependable it may soon become the go to gun. By the way what a great trigger in the M17 it will really surprise you in a very good way. I would say if ou want a Bullpup this is the one I would go with and did !

I have had my M17s since they were first released for sale. Here is one of my better groups. It took a bit of load development but now it's a 1 MOA rifle.
Somewhere I have a target with a similar sized group using a
69 grain Sierra HPBT bullet. If I find it, I will post it along with the
powder type and charge weight. Anxiously awaiting my M17s in .308.

Went out today with some different loads,
41 grains of Varget and a Hornady 155 Gr BTHP. Shot this group at 100 yards, measures  1.03 inches. Shot another that would have been 3/4 of an inch but I pulled the last shot. I have some Sierra 168 grain Matchking bullets  to do some load development with for next time.

This group could have been 3/4 of an inch if
I didn't yank the last shot.

Picture of the rest that I use for shooting groups. As you can see, I had the range to myself because of a football game.

Thank you Dogslayer for the pics.

After pining for the MDR for over a year, and coming to the realization that it may not be everything it has been touted to be, I've taken a much closer look at the M17S in 308, and I think it may be the rifle for me.

Dogslayer, it seems you've had your rifle for some time now...care to summarize it's strengths as you see them? (Accuracy, balance, etc)

There are several things that stand out. The ease of disassembly is fast, 2 AR15 style push pins. I especially like that it is all metal, yeah I have a Glock but prefer metal guns. The trigger is probably the best feature, makes it easy to shoot well.
There are plenty of places to put rails on it, for ppl that like to hang lights and lasers and whatnot off their guns. I'm not one of those guys but there are lots who do.
It's a good looking rifle, IMHO....

Just want to say that unless you are prone to dropping your rifle or do a couple
of tactical rolls in the sand before you come up firing, I highly doubt that you will
get enough debris in the action to adversely affect the function. Some ppl here
have a different opinion.

Thank you for your responses!

Do you find that, being an aluminum chassis, the heat buildup is an issue? I've seen this reported on MAC's channel regarding the 5.56 version, as well as other posts online.
How is the overall weapon balance with that 20" barrel?

If you do multiple mag dumps, yeah it's gonna get hot. You can get a vertical foreground to move your hand off the upper receiver. I don't have a problem with it because I don't fire 100 rounds non-stop. That will damage the throat of the chamber in time. I want accuracy not just putting lead downrange.

How does the recoil compare to other 308s (say, the SCAR 17s)?

I have never fired another 308 bullpup, so I can't help you on that question.
Some people like to do rapid fire, if one wants to do that, get a $500 AR15.
I was trying to be a dick, just being honest.

No offense taken...rapid fire is not really my thing either. Just trying to get a sense of this rifle.

I love my 556 m17s.
It's the only gun I take to the range these days.

Mikey - what are the positives for you? Would you prefer it over, say, a Tavor?

Any updates dogslayer?  I'd love to know if you were able to get consistent 5x5 or 3x10 groups.
