50 Rounds of 17gr Polymer Tipped .17HMR Ammo by Federal For Sale
In 2002, Hornady created the.17 HMR bullet as a varmint round. It was designed primarily to outperform its nearest rival, the.22LR, in terms of velocity, trajectory, and range. Its parent cartridge is the.22 WMR, and despite some controversy surrounding it, there is no questioning its ballistics and velocity. It is true that.17 HMR has a flatter trajectory and moves about a hundred feet per second faster on average than.22 WMR. The likelihood of ricochet at closer ranges is lower than with.22 WMR due to its speed. It is a fantastic small round and is preferred by many varmint hunters.
Federal produces the.17 HMR ammunition in question. They weigh only 17 grains, which is exceptionally small for this cartridge size but the average weight. Its small weight allows it to travel down range at amazing speeds while also reducing felt recoil. The Hornady V-MAX bullets used in these cartridges expand upon impact to produce an excellent wound cavity. The muzzle velocity and muzzle energy of each bullet are 2550 feet per second and 245 foot pounds, respectively. Although it can also be used for target practice, this ammo is intended for hunting varmints like coyotes and foxes.
