.17 Ackley Hornet (Cartridges of the World)

.17 Ackley Hornet (Cartridges of the World)
Warning! Notes: Historical Notes - The 17 Ackley Hornet is simply the 22 Hornet Improved necked-down to 17-caliber. It was originated by P.O. Ackley in the early 1950s, and he describes this cartridge as one of the most balanced of the 17-caliber cartridges. Although small, it delivers ballistics equal to some of the larger 17-caliber cartridges. It is an effective 200-yard varmint cartridge and is quite accurate. It is normally used in single-shot rifles, although the small Sako bolt-action was favored by many because it was made to handle rimmed cartridges such as the 22 hornet or 218 Bee.
