Ruger .17 HMR Rifle Shooting Squirrels

This is a pretty good video, but I had to turn the music off when they changed songs in the middle since they started dropping the F-word. If you have any kids in the room, just make sure the sounds is off.

It looks like the shooter is using CCI Hollow Point ammunition instead of the Hornaday Ballistic Tip ammunition, because way too many of the squirrels are still moving for a long time after they are shot. If I was shooting these squirrels I would have finished them off, especially the one that is “Trouting” for so long at the end of the video. (I may be wrong though, since I’ve found the most active squirrels to be those who no longer have a head.)

    Am I the only one that noticed that on his shot labeled “197 Yards” about 3/4 of the way through that there is a house almost directly behind where he was shooting? It appeared to be well within range of a .17 hmr. There certainly were a lot of “wigglers” on this video as well. Add in the music and this wasn’t my favorite.

    Great shooting and video taping. I still have not tried my savage 17 hrm yet but I did shoot one with my bow.

    Bud you need to work on you target point, a good kill is always a head shot, not a blown body. Quick and true, not weak and prolonging!
