I don't own one either but I have seen the .17 HMR ammo by
CCi, Hornady, Federal, Winchester and Remington...
So there are some choices but I couldn't tell you which is the better choice.

I just bought a Savage 17 hmr today and bought CCI tnt 17 grain and Hornady 20 grain. It was dark when I got home so did not get a chance to try it out.

Ive got a savage .17 and i love it. I shoot either remington premier magnum rimfire or hornady. I found that when i shot cci or any sort of hollow points, they didnt fly true and keep to the same pattern every time. Personally i would recommend to stay away from any kind of hollow points, but if you have good luck with sighting them in then go for it.
I sighted mine in last year with the hornady's at 75yds and they worked pretty good. I recently went to cabelas and bought the remington's and they work just as well. I just sighted it back in at 125yds, and im hitting a nickel size spot with five shots. So good luck

I'm gunna have to say whatever shoot best out of your gun. I have the savage 9317vs and it love the 17grn hornady vmax. But it still shoots everything sub moa at 100 yds. Weather being the biggest factor. But I use what groups best for me. Because I won't take a shot at any animal I'm not confadent in. Be it a squirl or an elk. Just my .02

Hornady 17gr v-max

remington loads shoot the best i think but for greater impact the CCi tnt loads are pretty consistant and make a bit of a hole too lol. ultimately i believe it what your gun likes the best we all know you can have 2 identical guns with same ammo and they won t shoot exactly the same . so whatever you find works well and you like through experimentation use it . i mentioned the rounds above as a starting point for ya. good luck have fun shooting.
