Ground Squirrel Hunting using the .17 HMR Ballistic Tips

Here’s a great example of how well the .17HMR ballistic tips perform.  As you probably know, the .17 HMR is an excellent round for shooting ground squirrels and the flat shooting, 17 gr bullet kills fast.  The shock value these rounds deliver is nothing short of amazing against varmints like this.  You can see the Henry Rifle .17 cal rifle by clicking here.

This video was shot using a Sony Handycam mounted on the rifle so you see it from the shooter’s perspective.

Head out the range or your favorite field and try a box of these ballistic tips.  And prepare to be impressed!

Henry .17 HMR Varmint Express Rifle

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Every now and then we like to highlight some special products.  Today, it’s the Henry Repeating Arms Co lever action .17 HMR Varmint Express.  This rifle means a lot to us since Henry advertises on this site and, without them, this site wouldn’t exist.

If you know anything about Henry lever action rifles, you know that they have the smoothest lever action in the business.  And what joy it is to hold and shoot.  The .17 HMR is extremely accurate and is probably the best caliber to use for ground squirrels and similar small varmints.

If you don’t have a Henry catalog yet please click on the picture below.  It will take to you to the Henry website where you can sign up to get their beautiful catalog.  I promise you, you’ll be daydreaming after looking at their catalog.  It’s one you’ll leave on your desk or coffee table and pick up frequently.

Henry .17 HMR Varmint Express Rifle

This is the rifle the range riders of the 1800′s would have loved to have had close at hand for picking off varmints or just plinking at whiskey bottles. But since the .17HMR didn’t hit the market until 2002, it will be up to you to make it a legend.

Shooting the .17 HMR Varmint ExpressOur Henry Varmint Express® packs eleven .17HMR rounds in its tubular magazine. It features a 20″ barrel, comes with a checkered American walnut Monte Carlo stock. Like all lever action Henrys, the action is incredibly smooth from the very first shot. It will enable small game and varmint hunters to take full advantage of the .17HMR with regard to velocity, trajectory, wind drift, richochet resistance, quietness and accuracy.

Hornady .17 HMR cartridgeAlready considered by many to be the most accurate rimfire cartridge ever produced, the .17HMR incorporates a .17 caliber bullet into a necked-down .22 magnum case. This high-powered combination produces a sizzlin’ muzzle velocity of up to 2,550 feet per second and the laser-flat trajectory makes it lethal for long-range shots on woodchucks, prairie dogs, foxes and other small varmints. Henry’s take on this revolutionary caliber, the Varmint Express, has a 20″ barrel that delivers dead-on accuracy.

Just like all Henry rifles, it’s handcrafted in the United States using only high-grade components such as a checkered American walnut stock, and Williams Fire sights and, of course, it’s outfitted with that legendary, smooth-operating lever action that sets a Henry rifle apart from all the imitators.
