Winchester Ammunition has announced a new rimfire cartridge that it's calling the most revolutionary in the company's history—the .17 Win. Super Mag.

The .17 Win. Super Mag. offers the downrange performance of a center-fire cartridge at only a fraction of the cost—allowing hunters to expect pinpoint accuracy and top-of-the-line performance from a rimfire cartridge at ranges past 200 yards.

The cartridge will initially be offered in three bullet types: 20-grain plastic tip in the Varmint HV (High Velocity) line, 25-grain plastic tip in the Varmint HE (High Energy) line and a 20-grain jacketed hollow point in the legendary Super-X line. Winchester has said that each .17 Win. Super Mag. bullet will surpass the long-range wind drift and bullet drop limitations of popular rimfire calibers like .22 Win. Mag. and .17 HMR, while also depositing more than 150 percent more energy than either round.

.17 Win. Super Mag. Specifications:

Each of the brand-new .17 Win. Super Mag. symbols will be offered in a 50-round box and 500-round case. The ammunition will be available at Winchester dealers by April 2013.
