Anyone use this bizarre little cartridge? What do you use it for and how does it perform? My tables here are quoting MV of around (and over with some loads) 4000fps on a 25grain bullet. Sounds pretty flat but not all that practical in general field situations - a little too specialst or am I missing something?

Cheers in advance.

Re: 17 Remington

I really love my 17 Remington. Mine is a Interarms, Mark V MZ, 25" Shilen SS sporter barrel and wears a 4.5-18 scope. I use mine mostly for varmints (rockchucks, Pdogs, rabbits, squrl's and coyotes).

The 20 grain Vmax are great on Pdogs, chucks and rabbits. Same can be said for the 25 horndady hollowpoints.

The berger 30 grain bullet is a great coyote buster.
What would you estimate as an effective range for a 20gn bullet? Even with those mad MV's, would it not just bounce off any game at 200yds?!
