17 Winchester Super Magnum ammo is a very young rimfire cartridge, introduced in 2012, and features a very unique design. The majority of 17 caliber rounds were based off of 22 caliber rounds including the 223, the 221, and the 22 Long rifle. However this 17 Super Magnum is a bit different. The cartridge is actually based around a 27 caliber nail gun blank, and the cartridge was necked down for the smaller 17 caliber bullet. The cartridge can be described as a bottle necked, rimfire, 17 caliber cartridge.
The 17 Winchester Super Magnum fires a 20 grain cartridge at over 3,000 feet per second. This makes the 17 Super Magnum the fastest rimfire cartridge in the world and a superb varmint hunter. The round has a very light recoil, making it a great bulk plinking round. As you’d assume, the caliber makes an excellent beginner’s rifle, especially when it comes to varmint hunting. The round has been embraced by the firearms community, and a variety of weapons have been chambered for it. Including Savage Bolt actions, Winchester single shots, and even two semi automatic rifles.
