This 17 HMR round by Hornady features the old Nebraskan company’s 15.5 NTX projectile. The core of the NTX is made of frangible copper alloy, and because the rest of the bullet is similarly devoid of lead you’re free to enjoy it in the great state of California. The NTX further features a streamlined polymer tip which flattens its trajectory in flight substantially. That hard tip is perched on the rim of the NTX’s match grade AMP jacket, so upon impact it initiates rapid fragmentation that is wholly devastating to small varmints’ bodies.
As a Hornady, this round additionally offers a select brass casing and propellant that is perfectly matched to deliver ideal performance for its caliber. This round’s still a tack driver even at 200 yards, so with it the odds are that if you can see a groundhog, you’ll be able send him along his merry way in an instant.
