Load data for caliber ".17 Rem."
The .17 Remington is a short-length cartridge developed by the Remington Arms Company in 1971. It is based on a necked-down .223 Remington case and uses a .172 caliber bullet, making it an ideal choice for those looking for small-caliber performance with minimal recoil.

The .17 Rem's efficient ballistics allow it to maintain flat trajectories and impressive retained energy levels at further ranges. This makes it great for shooters who want to take down varmint-sized game such as groundhogs or prairie dogs with precision accuracy at extended distances. Its low recoil also makes it suitable for novice shooters learning how to shoot, while its high velocity ensures quick, clean kills when needed.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
