Re: Any 17 WSM Coyote Kills?

I have shot many of small game with the 17 hmr when it came out. In the end the larger game ALWAYS fell better to the 22 win mag. I purchased one of the first Win Mags that came out and 2000 rounds with it. I can tell you with good shot placement the Win Mag kills VERY good, way better than the 17 hmr. The 22 win mag is still the go to round on a breezy day and if the distance/shot is questionable. anything over 35 to 40 yds is territory for the 22. I wish Winchester would neck the 17 Win Mag to 20 or 22 cal!

Haven't tried a 17 yet but the 22LR bought our groceries when we were first married a long, long time ago.

I remember getting a 22 Mag in the late 60s to shoot foxes with. How much were 2000 rounds of 22 Mag. shells when they came out in 1960? I remember them being way more than 22 LRs.

Re: Any 17 WSM Coyote Kills?

I owned a Remington 591M back in the early 70s and really liked it. The gun and the cartridge were both great. Nothing short of a centerfire could drop a varmint as fast. But when Remington stopped making the shells in the 80s, I sold the rifle because the shells got too expensive to justify.
When Centurian started making the shells again, I wished I hadn't sold it but I think I would have disappointed with the new ammo.

The 17 WSM may suffer the same fate if someone, like Savage, doesn't start building a quality rifle for it instead of the piece of crap B.Mag. I'm really disappointed it them. I'd readily pay another $100 for a better quality stock and a little less plastic in the rifle.

Maybe CZ is do better.
