CCI Adds VNT .17 Mach 2 And .22 WMR Varmint Rounds


Designed for explosive performance, CCI's VNT .17 Mach 2 and .22 WMR are designed to put varmints in check.

How VNT .17 Mach 2 and .22 WMR Excell Against Varmints:

  • Muzzle velocities in excess of 2,000 fps
  • Extreme terminal performance of Speer VNT bullets
  • Nickel-plated cases to resist corrosion

The thaw of summer is finally here and the suns out. No better time to put varmints in check. And CCI has you covered with two new hot rounds certain to get rock chucks and prairie dogs hopping.

Billed as explosive rounds by the ammo maker, VNT .17 Mach 2 and .22 WMR certainly appear to have what it takes to put varmints in check. Both rounds leave the muzzle in excess of 2,000 fps and are topped with the thin jacketed Speer VNT bullet, which features a polymer tip. This final feature flattens the trajectory of the bullet, as well as initiates expansion once it reaches the target. Also, nickel-plated cases, so the ammo is a bit more corrosion resistant.

Fire Away With More Rimfire Content:

The CCI VNT .17 Mach 2 (17 grain) and .22 WMR (30 grain) are available in boxes of 50, with the MSRP on the .17 running $10.95 and the .22 15.95.
