When you’re hunting extraordinarily dangerous game such as the red squirrel, prairie dog, or the pocket gopher, you’ve got to have ammunition that you can confidently stake your life on. If you’re venturing out into wild rodent country, then you couldn’t be much better served than you will by this 17 HMR cartridge by Winchester. What’s more, because it’s a Super-X round, it won’t eat into your budget for other adventuring supplies, either.
This cartridge has the precision drawn brass casing, sensitive and non-corrosive rimfire primer, and clean burning propellant charge you need for optimal performance. Its bullet, a 20 grain XTP by Hornady, has a jacket that is engineered to unleash deadly, explosive expansion without fail. This round’s consistent 2,375 fps muzzle velocity and uniformly dense projectile translate to exceptional accuracy — you’ll only need one shot to take down even the burliest beaver in the marshlands.
