    Hi guys

    Im from Melbourne Australia. Can someone explain to me why the Winchester USA website shows this 9mm Superclean Bullet contains lead in a fully enclosed brass shell but on the Winchester Australia Website in says in has a tin core. I tried calling Winchester Australia but they dont seem to know.

    The 20gr has the most muzzle energy at 400 ft. lbs this 15g only has 362 ft. lbs but I was wondering if this 15g retains the energy more efficiently at longer distances? For example the 20gr has 155ft. lbs at 250 yds, so potentially the 15gr could have the same or even out perform the 20gr at these longer ranges.

    It would be interesting to see the ballistics comparisons & where the range threshold if there is one where the 15gr catches up with, equals & outperforms the 20gr projectile ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anyone have any links to this info , thanks?

    I shot some PDOGS in CO. in July with the 20 and the 15 grains and the 15 BLOW them apart just like it did with ur's. The 20 didn't do that so much. Was goina buy the A17 but my friend said to get the 17 WSM BBSS so I did and am glad I did.ย Nice video's and the 17 WSM is great.

    Love the 17wsm cartridge! Nothing short of impressive! I bought my first 17hmr back in 03 and own 17hmr 3 rifles and have been a fan ever since but this new 17wsm is even more impressive. So impressed with it I own 3 of them also.lol. Best part about both is they are cheap to shot!
    Thanks for the video and happy varmint hunting

    I am currently shooting the Winchester 20 and 25 grain in my sporter barrel BMAG with the 25 shooting the best. I would like to try this but it is currently not available locally. I have found it as cheap as $16.87 a box online. Is this price well within a reasonable price? My 20 and 25 grain I bought in 500 case lots and I don't remember the prices.

    I heard you say a while ago that Win makes all of the 17 WSM ammo. Can you elaborate on that in a comment, or in a future review? Are we all kidding ourselves if we think our rifle "prefers" a different brand?

    Can't wait to try this in my Bmag. Another great video Eric. That 15 grain bullet sure has some explosive power!

    I was trying to find the correct word to express my thinking on this rifle,.something a little more effective than 'awesome'.
    But that will have to do for now.
    It surely is an 'explosive' round, given the impact on the ground squirrel.
    That rifle here in Canada, has a list price of around the $650.00CAD mark, with the upgraded bolt.
    Thanks, Eric.
