17 is Still second to a 204 with 39 grain SBK YMMV
Hmm, if they are like our Dingo they are shot on sight.Is it just me, or are those dogs too cute to shoot? And I do like that .17 Remington.
Well, I never had any use for sheep to begin with. Have you ever tried to eat one of those nasty little creatures? And you are always having to shear off all that kinky hair they grow. What do you do with all that stuff? Nah, I think sheep are great. All us cattle lovers love sheep. I'm just kidding. I just woke up.Hmm, if they are like our Dingo they are shot on sight.
I have nothing against the animal, it's a nice looking dog but it is our only predator and creates havoc where there are sheep.
We have birds of prey,
Foxes and feral cats prey on smaller species and eat carrion.
The .17rem was popular when fur was. Many people used it to shoot foxes for pelts in the 70's early 80's.

I think dingos are nifty looking animals, but I can only imagine what they can do to a flock of sheep, and other animals. If I lived down-under, I'm sure I would shoot dingos, too. And I have always wanted to shoot a huge wolf. But I still like dogs, and most .17 caliber rifles. So, 'ave a g'day mate. I'm from Texas and we all talk that way here!
Howdy Pard'ner! Welcome from Texas, where everything is bigger--is a myth. I am only 5' 10" and weigh about 200 lbs. I once hunted in New Mexico and a bunch of cowboys walked into this little bar we were visiting with our guide/friend. I had been around Texas cowboys my whole life. These New Mexico boys made me nervous. I was very glad they all knew and liked our guide.G'day Mate and welcome from Australia.
Even down under we know Everything is bigger in Texas.
We learn that from the movies.
We have plenty of use for sheep. Lamb roast is an Issue favourite. The wool industry has changed and some graziers opt for meat sheep with a decline in demand for wool.
The cattle station where I shoot Dingoes is 1,200,000 acres it would not be the biggest in Australia but pretty big for the area it's in it's pretty big but it's also owned by a company.
Where I am in NSW it's partilally protected by fencing a corner of the state for 200 miles south and 200 miles east with a high fence. That has worked for years and they are now extending it to help slow incursion s of dingo.
I have used a Rem 700 in .223 and a .308 on them but hoping to spend some time out there with my "Truck rifle" a Tikka CTR 7mm-08 with a 20" barrel
