Buddy of mine shot a coyote at 60ish yards with the 17wsm 25 grain. Pretty impressive. Enough for me to go out and buy one and put my 22mag up for sale.

Re: Any 17 WSM Coyote Kills?

I've got one and now I'm really impressed! I can't wait to use mine on one. I'm actually thinking about getting rid of my 17 hmr CZ. I just don't think ill use it as much. I also thought about having my HMR converted to 5mm but that seems pointless too.

It's definitely not easy to find here in southern ohio either. I've got three or four boxes right now. This will get me by for a while for lack of time to shoot.

Re: Any 17 WSM Coyote Kills?

I think shot placement will be key with the lighter bullets. I ordered a bmag but told them to sell to someone else due to lack of ammo and horrible reviews. I shot a yote at 25 yards with a 17 rem mag with a 20 grain bullet. Hit it square in the shoulder. dropped him and he got up and ran. Tracked him down in a brush pile hiding 75 yards away where I finished him off. I will still be getting a 17 wsm for hunting in MI at night

That's the bad thing about 17's. They definitely aren't made for bones.

that yote looks like the pelt is ruined, I would not expect that kind of damage with the little 17 bullet, I would be dissapointed. I will shoot a yote as soon as I can I finally got my b mag shooting decent groups so will see.....
