This gets brought up enough that I thought I'd just make a Sticky. Maybe someone will stumble across this before making some wild statements. I'm not saying the following two know more than anyone else, but in this instance, they're correct.

Their all made by CCI on the same machines with the same powder and componets.

You will see lot to lot differences which explains folks love for a particular brand.

Winchester is different animal and has been made by Winchester for the last 2-3 yrs.
It has not shot well in any of my four .17hmrs.

What shoots best is CCI TNT, with a close second being CCI Game Point 20gr (also sold as Honrady XTP). Both shoot quit a bit better than the 17gr V-Max's.

This isn't a discussion thread, so PLEASE don't respond unless anything concerning the above changes.
