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.
Good Luck

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.

hornady created the round so it get the title to it in everyone else's name
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

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 don't know if this is the standard but a friend of mine shot a bobcat at 168 yards last fall. He coyotes hunts with it regularly.
We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

I have used the 17 hmr on coyote, every shot inside 100 yds and it was effective, good clean kill with proper shot placement, I use the 17 gr hornady vax out of my ruger, I wasn't hunting coyotes, just shots of opportunity when zapping crows. I have done pretty good with the 17, usually average a 1.5 inch group on paper at 200 yards on very calm days, the wind affects these little bullets pretty bad and since I live in oklahoma where the wind never stops blowing, I don't shoot it as much as I want to
