Purpose: Target Shooting
"on the smith & Wesson model 647 in .17 hmr. I recently purchased the model ( stainless steel ) with fluted barrel, wood grips, bi-pod and red dot sight. I also have a s & w xvr 460 magnum that I added a bi-pod and leupold variable power revolver scope. the 647 looks like the 460's little brother. both revolvers sitting side by side equipped with their optics and bi-pods make an impressive pair. I haven't shot the 17 hmr much yet, mostly target shooting and plinking at closer ranges. I was not able to achieve the level of accuracy I was looking for with the red dot optic that came with the 647, the red dot I believe was a 5 moa, and feel a smaller 3 moa red dot would have worked better for me. so I took the leupold vari-power revolver optic off of my 460 and put it on my hmr and I can only say what a difference that made for me! with the duplex crosshairs of the leupold, i'm having a "blast"! if I do my part, I (and) others hit consistently at whatever we're aiming at. we've especially enjoyed shooting the "exploding" .22 caliber type targets and we have a special area on our property where we can shoot glass bottles. it's fun to set up bottles with necks and first shoot the neck off the top of the bottle, followed by shooting the main body of the bottle on the next shot. also have found that by freezing water in different shape containers are great target practice as well, just a little more time spent getting set up. so far can't speak for any longer distance accuracy reports but I have all the confidence the results will be equally pleasing. the only down side to the 647 that I could comment on would be the cost, which isn't outrageous but, most comments I think an owner would make to a fellow shooter would hinge on how much they're enjoying their 647 and not what it cost. so far i'm really enjoying this revolver!"
