I love the 17HMR.
Drops the game one shot very time, Bang Flop, well sometimes Bang Splat
If you want to eat your critters like I do, you need to head shoot them or all you get is guts splattering everywhere.
Also the 17 bullet does not drop like a hot rock like the .22lr does.
Sight in for 100 yds and your good to go.
Usually you sight a .22lr in at 50yds and with that you will get about 8" of drop, no so with the 17HMR.
I have shot hundreds of squirrels and some rabbits, like I said take head shots so as not to ruin the meat.
Failure is not an Option
