Was told by a factory representative that Foluji going to start making 17 Mach 2 ammo when?
Do you mean to say Fiocchi? They wouldn’t be doing this caliber, and it does look like CCI is doing HM2 exclusive for Cabelas for whatever reason. Hornady still makes the 17gr V-Max load for HM2 and it is available on several retail websites though.
Hornady is currently loading the round again. I recently bought a case of 5,000 rounds. I opened several boxes and not one split neck. Apparently, they have solved the neck splitting problem. In some of the old batches as many as 25 rounds in a 50 round box had split necks.
Just to clarify, Hornady does not make the .17 Mach 2. It is loaded for them by CCI.
