Re: .17 HMR for coyotes?

Two items here.

1. I purchased a 17HMR to hammer the yotes and feral dogs that were chasing my livestock. Out to about 100-125 yds on my property I have not had anything I shot and hit move away from where I shot them. 7-8 yotes and unfortunately three large dogs. I agree that on animals of that size 125 yds is the max clean killing range.

2. Not to be a know it all, but I have never heard of reloading rimfire brass. I have been a shooter for over fifty years and an avid reloader for over thirty years. Just wondering how you are able to re-establish the primer in the rim of the rimfire cartridge?

Hmmm. Elk51,
I think someone opened their mouth before they thought things thru, and ended up posting some Bull Shiot!!! The old timers at my gun club started laughing pretty hard when I brought it up? I think the primer is formed into the casing of a rim fire, but I'm far from a reloading expert?
Oh well?

Re: .17 HMR for coyotes?

All he is doing is pulling the bullet out of the wmr case and putting in the v-max round. He is using the same primer and powder that was already in there. It is not unheard of, look around a read a little. He is not reloading the cases just switching the bullets. And I have seen good hits on coyotes with a 223 and they are a tough animal, no way is the 17 big enough for an ethical hunter to use it in the field on coyotes.

A little light reading for the nay sayers who think they know everything and just realized they dont.

Re: .17 HMR for coyotes?

The 17 HMR will kill coyotes given the right situation as will a 22lr, and 22mag but my minimum caliber for all around use for winter furred coyotes not in a trap would be the duece (222) with a 50 grain bullet. As to changing the bullets in the mag, some have even taken it to a higher level with increased powder charges ect. but it is not a good or economical practice. Russ

hmr as a coyote round. From personall expierence you get about a fifty fifty on coyotes you will find. Im sure they all died just not sure how far they ran before they did.

I don't know about now, But there was a time that you could buy empty primed rim fire
cases for loading and there were quite a few people loading them.

Cost was about the same as factory ammo so the only reason to reload was for accuracy
and consistency.

Some even cast there own bullets.

Before they were available some of the guys loaded 60 grain bullets that were subsonic
for squirrels and an occasional neighborhood cat.
