I am encouraged by the amount of recent production of Hornady ammo. A number of distributors and LGSs received significant quantities. I hope that Hornady and CCI have noted how quickly this ammo is selling and continue producing it in even greater quantity. Hopefully this will also discourage the low-lifes who overcharge for it as we are able to buy it in the amounts we need at a fair price and just stop buying it at inflated prices.
I think this cartridge is experiencing a modest resurgence in popularity. My personal hope is that CCI will once again produce it under its own brand name and that they will load some up with the same 17 grain Speer HPs that it puts in its TNT 17HMR ammo.
If you want to encourage CCI to restart production under its own brand name, here is a good place to email that request.
(VistaOutdoor is the parent company of CCI, Speer, and about a dozen other shooting-related companies).
