17 WSM Ammo
In an unusual case (no pun intended), the .17 WSM (Winchester Super Magnum) was created based on the .27 blanks typically used in nail guns, but necked down to fit a smaller caliber bullet. It is a very high velocity cartridge firing a spitzer bullet that performs well in a small game hunting role.
.17 WSM ammo loads fire a light 20-25 grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of up to 3,000 feet per second. This high velocity aids fragmentation in hollow points for better performance against varmints.
Winchester and Hornady are the main manufacturers for this caliber; their ammo features polymer tipped bullets with high ballistic coefficient for accurate medium-range hunting.
