The .17 HM-2 is based on the .22 "Stinger" necked down to .17 caliber & the .17 Aguila is based on the regular .22 LR case necked down to .17 caliber.

I've never heard of 17 Aguila...but I have heard of Aguila ammunition. Tis made in Mexico. Could this be what you have?

17 HMR is a 22 mag necked down to 17.

17 mach II is a 22LR necked down to 17. BTW, I expect this to be a flash in the pan and soon disappear...just my opinion.

The .17 Hornady Mach-2 is the .22 LR "Stinger" (which is slightly longer than a regular LR case) necked down to .17 caliber.
