    17 hmr ammo options

    Hi all 17hmr users in the south.
    There is a little shortage of 17hmr at present, but in saying that! Iam looking to try a few different flavours.
    I would like some cci vmax and cci tnt and can trade hornardy 17hmr vmax or buy a part box or full.
    Could try 20gn but would like to stick to 17 if possible, be hard case if it likes 20g more than 17.
    This trading/buying would better if in the southland region.
    The hornady has shot just okay since I've had this rifle and it's what I call minute of rabbit, but not a great group.
    Thought I would run it in a bit before jumping on the playing field.
    Any help appreciated. Thanks

    What sort of rifle do you have? I just inherited a marlin 917v and havnt yet used it. I have 35 rnds CCI 17gn V max polymer tip varmint ( just reading details off the box ). Near Riverton and I can sell or swap , all my farmer friends have friggin retired and I got nowhere to even sight in , so I cant see myself using either the gun or the ammo so if you want it gimmie a pm :-)

    Yes I hear that some do bully, was that cci or Hornady?
    Thanks to hamsav I now have some 17 cci v max, and another local gave a few cci tnt.
    But still would like a few more, by all accounts winchester has gone to the pack with poor quality.
    And there's the 22 batches that are better than others, to me it is really a 120 130 max night shooter, then the 223 is better.
    That's why in the area's I am shooting 100 yards at night is mostly all I need and a flat minute of rabbit rifle it is.
    GWH and his hornet with minute of rabbit is appealing, I try not to educate the rabbits! that distance becomes a problem.

    Try Kelly county in Nelson. Think they have good supply of 17hmr.

    cci 20gr.
    I'm not sure how well it shoots them now, after some rounds, it shot 17 better, or well enough, so i switched.
