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.
