Q:is this a good shell for coyoteAsked on 4/5/2009 by montanardnk from athens il
A:Yes, this would work fine for coyotes.Answered on 4/9/2009 by Spencer from Gander Mtn
A:It's really too light. I've seen recommendations that your load should have at least 200-300 ft pounds at impact for coyotes. This would make the effective range less than 50 yards for a 17 HMR. At 200 yards, the 17 HMR only has about 75 ft. pounds of energy about the same as a 22LR at the same distance. This gun is best for varmints from about fox size down. If you don't have one, this is a "Giggle" gun. It's amazingly accurate for a factory load with virtually no kick so you can easily follow your shots through a scope. It much cheaper to shoot than a centerfire cartridge. It's about as much fun to shoot as any gun out there out to 200-250 yards.Answered on 4/23/2010 by Doc from Mountain Green, Utah
