One look is all it takes to know that CCI understands what varmint hunters desire. The Varmint Ammunition line features a variety of bullet technologies that are designed for the same goal: total devastation on impact. The A17 load is literally built around the A17 rifle from Savage. The round is optimized for feeding and function in the semi-automatic rifle, and produces muzzle velocities 100 fps faster than other 17 HMR loads with the same bullet weight. Its Varmint Tip bullet ensures explosive expansion and quick, clean kills.
