17hm2, CCI vs Hornady



Log in to see fewer ads
Went to the range yesterday and shot both side by side, had shot the CCI alone a little and was kind of disappointed but the weather was bad and wanted to give it another try. This rifle will shoot a lot better but my cataracts are really starting to make the targets cloudy when I have to focus, hopefully getting them out soon.

I'm glad the Hornady shoots better as I have 3500 rds sitting on the shelf. Here is comparison at 50yd then a group at 100 that's dead on hold and at 150 using the 1st hash mark on my Weaver V24. Shoots well within my standards considering my eyes.

5 rd groups except shot 6 at 150. I would have thought these were made to the same spec since Hornady does both but they are obviously different. Note that is one of John Reeds metal mags, beautifully made. Remington 581 action, Anschutz 1502 barrel, 2nd action screw pillered and bedded.

Actually CCI loads both. Hornady does not load any Rimfire, all of their Branded Rimfire is loaded by others.

Up until the latest branding by CCI their packaging showed 2010 fps while the Hornady showed 2100 fps. Now both show 2100 fps. I emailed CCI about his since they made both. The reply was that each company has it's own formula. My side by side comparison of the 2010 fps CCI load and 2100 fps Hornady load at 50 yards showed Hornady edging out CCI but not by much.

Thanks for the correction, i just said it backwards. I'm sure some guns will shoot the CCI better.
