17 WSM Ammo For Sale
what is WSM 17 ammo
WSM stands for Winchester Super Magnum. For example, the .17 WSM ammo for sale is a super magnum cartridge developed by Winchester in partnership with Hornady. It is like the .22 WMR and the .30 WCF, which are also super magnum cartridges. Super magnum cartridges are designed for rifle use and are only rarely used in any type of handgun.
This is important because handgun calibers are usually not interchangeable with rifle calibers. The .17 WSM cartridge is designed for long-range shooting, typically with a long-barrel rifle. Because the .17 WSM uses a super magnum case, it can be loaded with a higher-pressure load than a .22 long rifle, which is a standard cartridge. This means that the .17 WSM is more powerful than the .22 long rifle.
