Will the 17 cal bullets that are loaded in the 17 HMR or the 17 mach 2 work (shoot) in a 177 cal airgun?What is the 17 HMR bullet dia?

And if so where can I get them?

.17 cal

The projectiles for the .17 HMR are .172 I think, but I haven't pulled any down to see. Seeing as how it is a rimfire round, I don't think that they are available for purchase to reloaders, as you can't reload them.

Almost all airgun barrels are .177 and not all are rifled.HM2 and HMR are both .172.
