.17 HMR Autoloader

Been thinking about a .17 HMR in an autoloader. Magnum Research advertises one, but they are not available yet. Could one be built off a Ruger 10/22 MAG platform? These are even hard to find since they are not in current production, as i understand it. Any thoughts or opinions are welcome.

.17 HMR Autoloader

I believe that I read that the .17HMR developes considerly more pressure than the .22WMR and has required redesign of the operating mechanism for a semi-auto. This was in reference to the Ruger 10/22. I would check with Ruger before attempting such a project.
