The CCI 17 HMR VNT load features a polymer-tipped 17-gr. bullet from Speer. Velocity is pushed to a factory-rated 2650 f.p.s., and combined with the thin-jacketed, lead-core Speer projectile, shooters can expect to see increased terminal performance on game and flatter ballistic tables. CCI’s 17 HMR VNT load is well-suited for shooting at extended ranges. Price: $18 (box of 50). Contact: CCI Ammunition; (800) 379-1732; cci-ammunition.com.
