|Lt. Dave||Richard, you may want to speak with Wayne York and see if he can rechamber it in a slightly larger .17 cal cartridge. He did two .17 Hornets for me and they shoot terrific. Maybe a .17 Remington would fix your chamber up.|

The .204 Ruger has been an interesting learning curve for me.
But it's introduction has been a godsend as I thought I'd never find .222 Rem mag brass again.
I enjoy shooting both quite a lot.

|222||I hunt pdogs with 17 Hornet in a Savage 25 and love it a lot, I shot a coyote this week with it with excellent results as well as coon and a skunk in past. I have a HMR that stays home most of the time and a 223 that collects dust too. I wouldn't hesitate to pop a chuck with mine but opportunity hasn't risen yet. The Hornet is a reloaders round I'm shooting last hundred round of factory I have so have to start loading I got my rifle about a year ago and shot well over 500 rds each time I did my part it has worked most of my shots have been under 300yrds.|

|pastorp||We tried the 17 hmr on wild hogs but fineally determined a 22 mag was a better gun for free ranging hogs. And for trapped hogs a 22lr revolver was ideal.|

I had a 17WSM in a Ruger 77 for a while and really liked it for shooting coyotes in settled areas. The only reason that I went with it over the Hornet version was because a small community just west of her had a coyote problem. It is my opinion that they had a coyote problem because they also had a groundhog problem. Those coyotes were preying on the groundhogs. The town council decided that they would let me come help eliminate both pests. However they being clueless decided that since it was a settled area that I needed to use a rimfire.
In my opinion it was den full of 3/4 grown coyote pups that found easy targets of the ground hogs and village cats. The first evening I saw 6 coyotes parading down a fence line. That week I killed 4 of them and only 2 groundhogs. I figure momma and the other two pups found it wise to relocate.
The WSM had no problem anchoring coyotes out to 150 yards and anything the WSM can do the Hornet version can do a little better.
