new to varmint hunting, what got me interested was the 17 hornet. Savage 25(i know, not popular) w/ Thumbhole stock and Burris Veracity 4-20x50 shooting factory Hornady 20gr Vmax (for now). aimed at the head thinking it would drop to the body....324yard headshot
Built a custom AR (VarmintAR) with a 20" shilen 223 wylde barrel, adam arms piston conversion, shooting fire formed hornady brass and 53gr vmax with either CFE223 or H322. Leupold vx-2 6-18x?40
took a rascally rabbit at 370 yards.... thought it was a PD. had its ears down and was in an area i had been "trying" to get PD's
first time with both guns out but the 17 Hornet has to be my favorite. but the AR was fun to build, load for and shoot as well
