That's something only your gun can tell you. And the only way to find out is to buy, or try, different makes of ammo in it.

My Marlin shoots the 17gr. Hornady better than other 17gr.brands.But It also shoots the Winchester 20gr. gamepoint better than the others 20 gr. ammo. So you just have to shoot it all till you find the one that works.

I noticed the 17 HMR CCI's are called jacketed hollow points and do not have a polymer tip like a V-max.............What's up with that ?

All 17 HMR is made in the same place but it certainly is not the same. I have FMJ, hollowpoint and Vmax ammo...in a two different weights.

always double check the info thrown loosely about the internet ................

My Savage 93 BVSS shoots the 20gr best,,,CCI or Hornady, same POI. The 17gr Vmax or TNT shoot 2 inches left from my gun. I've stocked up with 20gr Hornady HP.
