I'll agree, maybe around the 17 Squirrel or 17CCM would be a better/closer comparison to the little 17HMR than the 22 Hornet is. BTW JM, I totally "insult" my 22 Hornets all the time when I shoot either of my two 17 Ackley Hornets. :wink:JMCrane said:Last post says .17 equel to hornet. Not! Thats like saying 30-30 equel to .300 Win mag
Hornet with 40 grain v-max, 1/2 grain under max chrono's at 2925 vs .17 hmr only 17 grain, also v-max, 2525 out of my rifle. Trajectory, energy not even in the ballpark of each other. 17 is fun but don't insult the Hornet and yes, I have both!
