American Eagle 17WSM Ammo Now Shipping

October 2014 brought welcome news from Hornady ammunition, when they announced that they would begin offering Hornady branded .17WSM ammunition in 2015.  In the meantime, Federal ammunition quietly released their own American Eagle branded .17WSM ammunition.  It looks like the American Eagle ammunition beat Hornady to the shelf and has begun shipping and is available at many online retailers.  Even though Federal/American Eagle ammunition is owned by ATK (CCI), the specs are an exact match to the Winchester ammunition (hmm…) and they are only offering the 20 grain bullet version right now.
