The .17 Hornady magnum rimfire (17HRM) was designed in 2002 by ammunition manufacturer Hornady. The casing is designed off the .22 magnum case by putting a .17 caliber round on a lowered .22 neck shell case. The bullet weight comes in 15.5, 17, or 20 grain with a velocity of 2,500 ft/s for the 17 gr and 2,350 ft/s for the 20 gr.

The .17 HRM was designed to be a rimfire cartridge that has a higher velocity and energy impact than its parent case .22 WRM, while still maintaining a relatively inexpensive round. The bullet has a faster path of flight, is more accurate & powerful, and maintains a flatter trajectory than the .22 WMR parent case. It also tends to be more expensive than other cases in its class.

The shells come in three types (polymer, hollow, soft point), and are intended for use with hunting varmints or small game. The .17 soft point shells have less expansion on impact, which makes it a popular round for varmint hunters due to the ability to salvage more edible meat off of game. The other cases have a longer range, are more accurate, and are more powerful for longer distance shots on small game. At close range the .17 HMR can destroy the majority of meat on a carcass, which is why the soft point version is available.
