The American Eagle 17 Win. Super Magnum is designed to deliver velocities of 3,000 fps with a 20-grain bullet. That velocity, coupled with the tipped bullet design, offers flat trajectories and downrange energy that's ideal for long-range varmints. Shipments of the new load are being delivered to distributors now. Boxes of the cartridge will carry a $19.95 MSRP.
The move is a natural one for Federal, as fellow Vista Outdoor brand Savage Arms produces the B.MAG, which was built around the .17 WSM cartridge.
