Re: Longest .17HMR kill?

I found a 500 yard kill on a coyote posted on another forum. I think I bookmarked it, I will have to post it up.

On of those situations where my shooting pardner's only comment on watching the shot was "your kidding me right, how did you hit that?" He had just taken a poke at it with a 223 minutes earlier and missed.

Re: Longest .17HMR kill?

Iv had a 17 HMR rifle since it first came out. Most all of my shooting is at prairie dogs. I live in prairie dog country so when it gets windy I dont go or come home. When I first got the Cooper 57 M LVT rifle I tryed the 17 Gr bullet at various ranges. I wont clean kills when I shoot them at any angle so my limit on long range is about 150 yards. I have inspected a few p dogs shot at the 180-200 yard ranges but most got back into their holes so thats why I set the 150 yard range for myself. I use centerfire varmint rifles for shots past 150 Yds.

My longest 17 HMR kill was 300yrds on a prairie dog. 17grn v-max. 5-6 mph full value from the 6 o'clock. I had to shoot it twice to get it to stay down. No exits just two pencil holes.

Re: Longest .17HMR kill?

Has anyone shot the Hornady 20 grain Game Points? I have a Savage 93r17 and it shoots the 17gr Vmax pretty well. However, it typically splits squirrels damn near in half.

I wonder what the 20 grain hollow point does. Anybody???

Re: Longest .17HMR kill?

My longest kill was 191 yards on a crow. The 20 gr hollow points seem to hold together a little better than the 17s but not too much. The 20 gr FMJs work the best on anything you'd want to eat in my experience. But I can't find them anywhere except online.
