Picked up high scope rings today and will mount a Leupold 3x9-40 Century. I'm not much for shooting paper; if it will do an inch or so I'm be happy because I don't shoot much over 100 yards. Just weighted the thing and it is 7lb without mag, ammo and scope. It feels heavier. I don't reload and am still looking for ammo. No one in the Bakersfield area has .17 Rem and all of the shops I checked wanted to sell me .17 HMR. Where are you all getting your ammo?Thanks, Woo
I've killed yotes with both the 20 gr. v-max and the 25 gr. hp's, neither exits and most were bang flops or a quick spin and flop. Shot placement is the key. Would like to see what that black gun does as far as groupings.

I finally found 25 gr .17 Rem ammo in stock at Sportsman's Guide for $23.87 a box plus a ten percent discount if you become member. No, I don't reload. Thanks for the help and suggestions everyone. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/Woo
Finally put together my S&W, Stag, DPMS, etc. AR-15 in .17 Remington. Dan Carey built the upper with a SS barrel, not quite a bull barrel, and it is heaver than I expected. No pics because they all look the same! So short of asking John Henry on Coyote Gods, is anyone here shooting coyotes with a .17 Rem and what are you shooting? Oh yes, I expected to get an AR-15 .17 Rem mag with the upper and didn't. So where do I get a .17 mag?

Does Barnes make a .172 bullet? I know Berger makes a nice 25gr bullet but I haven't seen it loaded commercially.
The Honady 25 gr hp is good for them coyotes but is very unforgiving in the slop shot department. The Barnes bullet is a little more forgiving but pricier. I load mine way to hot to publish loads for but they are a hoot to shoot and you can watch everything happen through your scope as you don't really blink when you shoot it. Like a 22 lr it has such low recoil....Walt
