This cartridge was introduced by Hornady in 2002 and was an instant success.
Hornady gave shooters a serious varmint cartridge that can easily take game at 200 yards.
Basically the 17 HMR is a 22 WMR (Winchester Magnum Rimfire) necked down to
.17 caliber, although the 22 WMR case is slightly thicker by a few hundredths
of a millimeter.
The 17 grain V-MAX projectile does 2550 feet per second, and the 20 grain XTP
does 2375 feet per second, with pressures only a little higher then the 22 WMR:
Winchester Magnum Rimfire.
Today most of the major ammunition makers are producing this caliber and
most large firearms makers are chambering it in rifles and revolvers.
It does smoke!
