17 HMR History
17 HMR ammo rimfire cartridges were developed in 2002, based on the design of .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire. The 17 HMR ammo's cartridge design was influenced by a need for a flat trajectory and ballistics that matched the 5mm Remington Rimfire Magnum – the fastest rimfire cartridge ever produced. Hornady teamed up with Ruger and Marlin and decided that necking down the .22 Magnum case to accept a .17 caliber bullet was the best way to create a smaller, faster projectile. By 2004, CCI, Federal, and Remington were producing 17 HMR ammo rounds. 17 HMR ammo’s availability can’t be beaten. Its introduction led firearms manufacturers, such as Savage, CZ, Browning and Mossberg to produce 17 HMR bolt-action rifles.
