- Q & A
Hunting varmints requires many things, not the least of which is speed. .17 HMR is a popular varmint round capable of delivering a clean kill time and again, and thanks to its incredible speed it’s able to reach out and touch your targets in record time. .17 HMR was designed in 2002 by Hornady and is often described as a necked-down .22 Magnum. There are many benefits to using .17 HMR for varmint control including its speed, which also means there’s less risk of ricochet at closer ranges, and its ability to maintain a flatter trajectory. If you use .17 HMR to hunt varmints and pests, take a look at these rounds made by the cartridge’s original creator, Hornady.
These .17 HMR rounds weigh 20 grain, which is incredibly lightweight but technically the heaviest available for this cartridge size. Being so light is what gives these rounds the ability to race down-range at incredible speeds and also keeps felt recoil to a minimum. These rounds utilize Hornady’s XTP – eXtreme Terminal Performance – bullets which begin to expand immediately upon impact. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 2375 feet per second and muzzle energy of 250 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically meant for hunting varmints such as coyotes and foxes.
When you order this box of ammunition from Hornady you get 50 rounds. That’s just enough to give you and your gun a taste of what these rounds are capable of, and we’re confident you’ll be back for more. Hornady has been in the ammunition business since 1949, when Joyce Hornady founded the company because the market was being flooded with poor quality rounds and his solution was to simply make better ammunition himself. Joyce’s motto was “ten rounds through one hole” and the company’s high quality ammunition makes that kind of performance possible. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Grand Island, Nebraska. Place your order now and get out there to smoke some varmints.
Most Useful Review POSITIVE vs. NEGATIVE
These are deadly accurate at 150 yards. Great for varmint control. My savage HMR 17 works best with these.
