Has anyone used a 17HMR on goats?If a rabbit comparison is anything to go on, a well placed HMR round should be quite effective.About to what range would be readily lethal?
I'm in this vid shooting off the boat:
Update:Took the 17HMR for a goat hunting trip on the weekend. One shot in the side of the head midway between eyes and ears drops them in their tracks. Managed to get fairly close (~20m) but even that close, the bullet went in, and only cracked and deformed bone on the other side of the skull - so no exit hole.Mightily impressed with the 17HMR!
Good going, that must have been a real fun stalk to get in that close!

Bombing them would be right with a .270!!Jeez...they would be out like a light...
