do u know if a .17 Hmr is good for coyote hunting and whats the accuret range of a .17?
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
i have a marlin 17hmr with a bull barrel i shoot cci tnt 17grain hollow points i have many headless squirrels to know it works well i shot them from 15yds to 80yds i love this gun and yes jake112 you can take down a coyote with it good clean head shot at 85yd did'nt know what hit him
do u know if a .17 Hmr is good for coyote hunting and whats the accurate range of a .17?
Maybe out to like 100 yards or so but I personally wouldn't trust it. I would say .22mag as a minimum. The bullets for the .17HMR are just to small and light. I've got a .223 and a .243 that I use as coyote guns. A .17HMR would probably be accurate out to 100-175 yards.
