FMJ HMR ammo



Log in to see fewer ads
Who makes a FMJ 17hmr round. I know CCI makes the soft point round but does anyone else produce a FMJ bullet. I have a place to hunt hogs but the landowner will allow me use rimfire rifles. This means I have to head shot them and I would rather do it with a solid bullet over HP or ballistic tips.

CCI

CCI load # 0055. 20 grain FMJ. Nominal muzzle velocity 2375 fps. We have no feral hogs here in my little corner of Utah (hope it stays that way!), so no advice on how they will work.

CCI makes FMJ. I skeptical about their effectiveness on hogs. I tagged a coyote once and he just barely broke his stride.

You have to shoot a hog in the head to DRT. Shot him in the vitals and he is going to run a very long way and never be recovered. We bait them with corn and shoot them from a blind. It's about the only way you are going to kill them with a rimfire. Aim for the spot between there ears and eyes and you will be golden.

The XTP would work for a head shot. Every hog that we butchered got shot with a .22 lr. I saw ONE that took 2 shots and it was because of a audibly quieter first shot. Guys are using .22 and .25 air rifles to kill them with head shots. Personally I would use a centerfire, for a hunting situation, unless I was in a blind right over them. If their is too much angle, the bullet will glance off.

I've still got half a dozen boxes of CCI FMJ a couple years old. They must have rebranded.

Wonder what's up with that? The first time I even looked for any was about 2 years ago, and I found TMJ. Doesn't matter, just curious.

It looks like currently they're calling their. 17 HMR FMJ and their. 22 WMR TMJ. TMJ is defined as "encapsulated full Metal jacket", whatever that difference is. Their Blazer handgun centerfire is FMJ.

I have them both, but I thought both were be referred to as TMJ. Guess I messed that one up!

Those 20 gr. 17 caliber FMJ bullets have allegedly pierce body armor. I wonder if it is true.

Body armor will not stop any rifle bullet that I know of. As the 17 HMR is 2500 and the 17 WSM is 3000, I would imagine either one of them will.

I know a LEO who says that one of the things he fears is 22Mag, some of which has the capability of piercing some body armor even when fired from a handgun.

I used old body armor as medium in my clearing barrels at home. I have tested the standard 17 grn and both 20 grn flavors against old level 2 and 3A panels with and without trauma plates. I had some fragments of the fmj show through the back side of the 2A panels. 40 and 50 grn fmj WMRF all stop in a 2A panel. These are all out of a rifle at less than two feet with a loose fill sand bag as backing.
