I picked up a ruger x-17 (bolt action heavy barrel 6x scope) which is a really fun shooter and great for squirrel hunting. While zeroing the scope I noticed my groups were not consistent, so I tryed 2 brands of 17hmr ammo! The only two I could find in my area in stock.

Then I got a call from a local gun dealer - he got my 2 boxes of 17HMR from Hornady .17g & 2 boxes .20g. I went right to the range and shot 3 rounds .17g @100yds. With one click on my scope to the right and it's been history every since. This took place in 2010, 100yds-9rounds-in-the circle of a nickel (inside the circle) and I'm still doing this today with Hornady .17HMR .17g and using .20g to explode squirrels!

Thank you Hornady for taking pride in your work!
