    Lots of coyotes fall to .17hmr.

    It's the best rim fire varmint round.
    Almost 30 years ago, I was looking for the best varmint round period. Landed on 223. Pet load ended up being the 50 gr ballistic tip @ 3,500 fps. Just below serious barrel burner speed.
    Played with the Sierra 40 gr HP. That went 4,200 fps. 26"barrel.
    Longest P-dog kill was just over 700 yards with the 50's.
    I thought about the Ruger 22 Mag varminter, but tried loading the 223 down. Using the 45 gr Hornet bullet with 9 gr of Blue Dot, I got 2,300 fps and sub MOA, for a cheaper per round cost than 22 Mag.
