Default Would This Work On Coyotes ?

20 grain bullet HP/XTP

Going 2375 Feet Per Second.

With 250 Foot pounds of energy.

Would this be enaugh for coyotes to around 100 to 150 yards ?

What do you think ?

Thank You

I agree with the 100-120 yard limit. I also wanted to say try to keep your shots very accurate. With the .17 HMR, I favor head shots over body.

How far would you guys give a 17 remington? 25gr @4,000fps...about 900ft/lbs? I know energy will bleed off quickly but I'm thinkink 300 yards easy (energy is still at 240ish and drift is up to 8"[.223 is same] and 3" low)

Thinkink? I am lost here....... from .17 rem to .17 HMR, I think I missed something from the time of opening my mouth to gulp a mass of hefeweizen, to swallowing the beer....

My bad[&:] read "I'm thinking 300 yards easy" I realize the two cartridges have little more than the diameter in common but I've recently "discovered" the 17 remington and thought I'd hijack the thread. Reason being that I don't really know if its suited for longer shots (meaning much over 150yards).

Take 200 yard shots! It says in Shooters Bible that the .17 HMR shootsa 20g bullet at 407 f.p.e. and is usually dead accurate at 200yrds. Or with a 25g bullet it shoots 388 f.p.e. and is still usually dead accurate at 200 yards. Place that bullet good!
