Re: Any 17 WSM Coyote Kills?

I just got my B-mag the other week, and have shot a coyote. 125 yds on a gallop and dropped him in his tracks. I shot the 25 gr. HE loads.
I also put a decent scope on mine, so that helps too. Luepold VX1 3x9x40.

One heck of a gun. The bolt is a little tight, but I can get used to that...small trade-off in my mind.

    Well, here's another .17 WSM: https://www.volquartsen.com/products...emi-auto-rifle

    It's spendy though, cheapest one is $1875. And it weighs 9lbs.

    I was really hoping shot show would announce a few new rifles by other manufacturers. Guess I'll cough up $290 for the Savage and hope for the best...

    The Winchester's MSRP is $1469.99, so yeah, still looking like the Savage to give it a try...

    I shot a coyote with my .17 WSM Winchester super Mag shooting the 25 grain bullets. The shot was placed right behind the shoulder about three inches below spine and it dropped the coyote in its tracks. 75 yards shot on a 30 pound female. I was pretty impressed the hole wasn't big but I skinned the coyote and the internal damage looked greater than a .17.

    That's awesome news. I hope to get out and use mine this coming week. I haven't been out all winter long. I'm desperate for a hunt.

    For people looking for WSM ammo, some Walmarts carry it. I noticed some the other day at the local walmart in Frankfort KY
