    Good Ammo

    Ilike bullet makes gun shot. Not good in wind misses target in little wind. Takes to much money to by.

        This ammo is great. It has a punch for such a small round. The weight of the round does pose a problem in high wind...but that is expected.

        • Q:

          Will this have enough power to kill a coyote at 100yards or less?

            A:

            maybe.. but .17 doesnt have hardly enough knock down power. if i was shooting coyotes i would use the full metal jacket (fmj by cci)bullets that are 20 grain. (vmax are 17 grain). i would recommend a .223 or a .22-250 for coyotes.

        • Q:

          What is the range of this bullet andwhat rifle would you suggest for this round.
          Asked on 3/28/2010 by Ken from Burlington, North Carolina

          2 answers

          • A:

            I shoot squirrels and i have a savage .17 with the accu-trigger and a world class tasco scope. this rifle is very good it is worth $500 if you want to spend $800+ i would recommend the ruger 77/17 is very good also.. if all you shoot is rabbits, squirrels, etc the 17 grain works very effective up to 150+ yards. I have confirmed kills at 165+ yards with shells like these.

            Answered on 5/26/2010 by cj from Glenn CA
          • A:

            I suggest the Henry Lever Action in .17HMR (either the Golden Boy or the Varmint Express). Each model holds 12 cartridges and the Henry lever action is smooth as silk. Another plus is that lever action rifles are great for left-handed shooters. Oh, and ALL Henry rifles are made in the USA!
