While I don't like the .17's in general, I do like the way the .17 WSM was designed: Take a .27 caliber nail gun blank and neck it down to .17. And, I can see the market justification: People have liked the .17 HMR, so more must be better. But in this day of cartridge proliferation, why isn't there a .22 WSM made by taking the .27 nail-gun blank and necking it to .22? Given the developments in powder and projectile design over the last decade or so, the performance may be able to get close to the 22 Hornet. In a handgun, I think it would be superior to the 5.7x28. Is the market just too small? Or is there something else I am missing.
