17 HMR Ammo
17 HMR ammo is primarily used today by hunters for varmint control. The round was developed by Hornady and released in 2002, .17 HMR (Hornady Magnum Rimfire) is best known for its high velocity and excellent performance against small game. Based on a necked down .22 WMR casing, it is a flat-shooting cartridge and fires aerodynamic spitzer point (typically polymer-tipped) bullets for enhanced long range performance.
.17 HMR loads feature an extremely light (17 or 20 grains) bullet. This makes muzzle velocities of up to 2,550 feet per second possible in a compact, low-recoil platform. Hollow point bullets fired at these velocities fragment reliably in squirrels, rabbits, groundhogs, and other small critters for better terminal effect.
The .17 HMR has caught on with many shooters. As a result, good ammo in this caliber is available not only from Hornady, but also from CCI, Winchester, Remington, and Federal as well. You'll find our entire in-stock line-up for sale right here on this page.

Manufacturer CCI Condition New Bullet Weight 17 Grain Bullet Type Polymer Tipped Use Type varmint hunting Casing Type Brass Quantity 50 Ammo Caliber 17 HMR Manufacturer SKU 959CC Primer Type Rimfire Magnetic No UPC Barcode 604544621198 Cost Per Round 37.7¢ per roundIf you don’t know your ammo terminology, then the phrase “CCI 17 HMR 17gr VNT” would be enough to make your head spin. But if you do know your ammo, you will recognize that combination of initials and number 17s as one of the finest solutions for varmint hunting.
This 17 HMR round features the middleweight bullet for its caliber, yet its powerful propellant charge gives its 17 grain bullet a 100 fps faster muzzle velocity than average. That added speed in conjunction with the VNT’s ballistically efficient polymer tip and rotationally stable copper jacket grants it a lofty .125 ballistic coefficient – and accordingly flat trajectory.
The VNT is deadly to small game. The moment it makes contact its polymer tip drives into its nose cavity, forcing the wafer-thin jacket to burst apart into smithereens. Such terminal performance absolutely vanquishes varmints, flattens foxes, and discombobulates bobcats.
CCI pairs a sensitive primer with a precision drawn and tapered brass case to assist with seamless functionality. CCI does advise checking with a semi-automatic firearm’s manufacturer before running their high velocity 17 HMR ammo through it.

This 17 HMR cartridge in particular spells for certain doom for verminous beasts, because its 20 grain XTP projectile by Hornady (which is also suitable for self-defense in greater calibers) wreaks absolute havoc within a target like a ground squirrel.
This cartridge’s bullet is laden with features that benefit terminal performance. It splits up quickly following impact thanks to the serrations that precisely divide it into sections, and its thickness varies throughout its length so as to ensure that expansion takes place at an even, measured pace. This is a hollow point bullet, but its rim is guarded by the jacket to promote more certain penetration, as well as feeding. This XTP is long and aerodynamic, which in conjunction with its swaged lead core gives it the accuracy needed to hit tiny critters from long distances. You’ll be the bane of anything with buck teeth with 1,000 of these rounds!
