17 HMR Ammo

The .17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire (HMR) is the most recent development in rimfire cartridges. It is excellent for long range varmint hunting and casual plinking. The advantage of the .17 HMR is that it maintains a very flat trajectory, which allows for a very accurate cartridge.

History of .17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire Ammunition

Introduced by Hornady in 2002, the .17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire was designed for shooters who desired a fast, light-weight rimfire cartridge. Varmint hunters extol the .17 HMR for its very high velocity that allows for extremely flat shooting.

Several companies today produce .17 HMR ammo including CCI, Federal, and PMC. Winchester and Remington sell the cartridge with polymer tipped bullets, hollow point bullets and soft point bullets. The .17 HMR has impressive ballistics. Bullets weigh between 15.5 grains and 20 grains. Bullets this small, propelled by the comparatively large powder loads in the .22 Magnum case, travel at high velocities. Some loads have a muzzle velocity as high as 2,550 feet per second. Even with those high velocities, muzzle energy for the .17 HMR is only about 250 foot pounds. This, however, is plenty for shooting varmints and targets at long distance.

Accuracy of the .17 HMR is almost as good as the velocity. The cartridge easily shoots one inch groups off the bench at 100 yards for even a casual shooter. The maximum lethal range for shooting varmints is somewhere from 150 to 300 yards, contingent upon the ability of the shooter and current weather conditions. Since .17HMR bullets are so light weight, the trajectory will be affected more by the wind than heavier bullets. This adds to the challenge and fun for some, of shooting this great little cartridge.

Several manufacturers offer rifles chambered for .17 HMR including Savage, Marlin and Ruger. These rifles are primarily bolt action, but a few semi-automatic rifles and even some revolvers are made this cartridge.  The .17 HMR is fun to shoot and a deadly accurate rimfire cartridge. It is great for a novice just learning to shoot, or an experienced shooter who wants the challenge of shooting super light bullets at super long ranges.

    "Bought several boxes. Just now got around to firing some in my Henry Golden Boy 17 HMR. Shot 100 rounds. 15 failed to fire. Good strike marks on rim. Just failed. Bad!! I have never had any other 17 cal brand do this. In fact, since I have had my Henry, I have had no failures until now. I read some other reviews around the internet and some had more failures per 100 than I did. Very disappointed in Winchester. Once I get these boxes used up at firing range, I will buy no more and I sure would not use these loads if I were out coyote hunting. - "
