Frank, same brass, same powder, same primer, same bullets, same boxes,
different headstamp, different label, same factory, same technicians, same machines.
This question has been asked and answered multiple times on multiple forums.
Only CCI is still manufacturing 17 hm2 as far as I can find with a web search.

One of many links...

That’s a good read. Thanks for the info

Dang that just means I have to test every lot I buy.

Used to live close to the plant. Wish I still did and could find guys working there and ask them to put more “tlc” into the batches lol

I emailed CCI with the question about CCI and Hornady being the same since they were made at the CCI plant. I asked in Jan. 2018.

Here is their response.

"Each of these loads are built to the specifications that are set by CCI or Hornady so they are not necessarily going to be identical.

Not necessarily going to be identical...funny, I've had problems with any of my CCI
and Hornady rimfire products shooting the same, and that from the same box of ammo
and from the same rifle in consecutive pulls of the trigger. But that may be due to my
shipping address being used to get rid of old stock or variations in the manufacturing process.

I know 2 things that aren't identical, the headstamp and the labels.

wait, three things, and the colors of the ballistic tips.

I have new stock of both Hornady and CCI. Aside from the color of balistic tip, they shoot almost identical; .75-.80 at 75m.

I have had a couple of slightly cracked necks in the 2 bricks of Hornady I have shot the past 2 years and I check every spent casing.

With the price being sub 7.00 per box, NOW IS THE TIME TO STOCK UP. I feel I have enough, but the longer the closer it gets to August, the less likely I am to keep passing it up😉
