One of my favorite things is shooting "dogs" super good shot, 300 is awesome 404 is unreal
I love my 17HMR too. Killed high hundreds of prairie dogs with it, an Impala, Steenbok,monkey's, springhares, and rabbits with it in Africa too. Probably has over 1,ooo kills on it.
Until a month ago when I was helping some friends at one of their long range schools, I would have said BS to hitting a hog at 400+ but on of the guys had a new high dollar
Anschutz in 17 HMR with a 4-16 Nightforce on it and 3 of us were taking turns hitting a 6" plate at 400yds with some tricky winds. was crazy because at 242yds it was going subsonic with virtually no change in trajectory unlike when we are shooting big bore CF
and they go subsonic and become unpredictable. I'm still amazed by it.
ive shot lots of pdogs with 17WSM and some with HMRs with about 250 are limit point.
not much energy at 400 left in those little pills. still like a CF for dogs but man the last
couple years we have gone to OR to shoot sage rats and they do great there too.
They do a 17wsm lol
I guess if you like the bmag.
Bref, a 400 verges un calibre 17Hmr a la même énergie qu'une arme a air comprimé pour enfant. Quand on raconte une histoire, il est nécessaire de vérifier les tables de ballistique pour vérifier si c'est possible, peu probable, ou impossible. Mais j'aime les contes de chasse et de tir.
Sorry can’t quite understand French lol
In short, at 400 yards a 17Hmr caliber has the same energy as a child's air gun. When telling a story, it is necessary to check the ballistics tables to see if it is possible, unlikely, or impossible. But I like the tales of hunting and shooting.
