17 HMR AMMUNITION SAFETY NOTICE AND WARNING
(Updated June 9, 2016)
All CCI 17 HMR ammunition may be fired safely and reliably through the Savage A17™ semi-automatic rifle. The firearm features an exclusive delayed-blowback action and interrupter lug that force the action to stay safely closed until pressure drops to a safe level upon ignition.
Do NOT use 17 HMR ammunition in ANY OTHER semi-automatic rifle without consulting the firearms manufacturer. Use of 17 HMR ammunition in other semi-automatic firearms may result in serious personal injury or property damage.
17 HMR ammunition is manufactured in accordance with standards issued by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers' Institute (SAAMI). Subsequent to the design and introduction of 17 HMR ammunition to the market, 17 HMR semi-automatic firearms were introduced by various firearm manufacturers. Many of those firearms have proven to be incompatible with 17 HMR ammunition. 17 HMR ammunition is suitable for use in quality firearms in good condition that are not semi-automatic (with the exception of the Savage A17).
Accordingly, do not use 17 HMR ammunition in semi-automatic firearms without consulting with your firearms manufacturer. Only use 17 HMR in quality modern firearms in good condition marked for 17 HMR cartridges. Always use eye and ear protection. Always read all product labeling carefully for instructions on safe use.
Please contact your firearms manufacturer. For ammunition questions, contact CCI Technical Service.
