.17 HMR / Vmax Book Penetration Test

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Savage 93  .17 HMR Vmax penetration test with 800 page book!

Here’s a fun thing to do on the range!  Get out all those old books and shoot at various ranges with different loads and bullet types to see what type penetration and bullet expansion you get!
The .17 HMR would loose a lot beyond 100 yards but sure is sweet within 50 yards or so.

Varmint Rifles – Coyote Hunting

Varmint Hunting – Varmint Rifles – Coyote Hunting


Today’s video talks primarily about coyote hunting rifle selection.

Needless to say, there are many considerations when selecting any predator rifle – whether for coyote hunting, ground hogs, ground squirrels, or other predators and varmints.

Unless you have an unlimited  budget, you’ll probably be selecting one or two rifles for all your varmint hunting.

In this video the author has selected an AR in .308.  Very nice build.  Can be used for everything to small varmints, to predators, deer and more.  Very versatile.

See what you think – enjoy the video!
