17 Hornet
The .17 Hornet, or .17 Ackley Hornet, was orginally a wildcat cartridge designed by
Mr. Ackley in the early 1950s; it was also called the .17 Pee Wee and O'Neil-Ackley.
The cartridge was created by necking-down the .22 Hornet to .17 caliber.
The result was a small case with relatively little noise capable of high velocity.
The new (standardized) 17 Hornet below by Hornady
does not have the same
dimensional specifications as the original wildcat cartridge.
`
Below from the Hornady website:
"
Based on the 22 Hornet cartridge case,
the 17 Hornet propels the 20 gr V-MAX
at 3,650 fps. Fueled with Superformance
propellent, the 17 Hornet
Superformance Varmint  delivers the
trajectory of a traditional 55 gr 223 load,
but is a
pleasure to shoot with the felt recoil of
a 22 WMR. The 17 Hornet is a fun .17
caliber centerfire cartridge that puts the
STING on varmints out to 300 yards!
