Actual Picture Of 17 Hornady Mach 2 Cartridge17 Hornady Mach 2: (.17HM2)
 The .17 Hornady Mach 2 is a .17" caliber rimfire cartridge introduced in 2004 by Hornady. The .17 HM2 is based on the .22 Long Rifle case, slightly lengthened and necked down to .17 caliber and using a bullet weighing less than half what typical .22 Long Rifle bullets weigh. The velocity is double that of a standard .22 Long Rifle, and that velocity generates a much flatter trajectory out to the 150 yard effective range of the cartridge. The little .17 HM2 uses a higher priced bullet than the .22" calibers however this does have its advantages, and superior accuracy is one of them.
Cartridge case length is .714".
