From prairie dogs and ground squirrels to coyotes and foxes the 17 Win Super Mag from Hornady is a fantastic new option for varmint hunters everywhere. Rounding out the Hornady line of high speed rimfire cartridges is the 17 Win Super Mag. Filling the gap between the 17 HMR and the centerfire 17 Hornet, the 17 Win Super Mag fires a 20 grain V-Max bullet at 3,000 fps.
Hornady’s V-Max Bullets feature a polymer tip which enhances accuracy and promotes devastating expansion. The tip raises the ballistic coefficient for faster velocity and helps to stabilize the bullet in flight. It also acts as a wedge, initiating bullet expansion. The copper jacket provides the necessary bearing surface for maximum stability out of the barrel, and the jacket is built to withstand the fast twist rates of the most advanced varmint rifles. Retaining over 2,000 fps of velocity at 200 yards, the 17 Win Super Mag provides plenty of velocity for the hard-hitting V-Max bullet to perform on varmints at extended range.
