if anyone sells their fur. The 17 Remingtion Center fire is an outstanding fur gun.. A 25 grain bullet there is just a small entry hole. The fox, coyote, coon, and or bobcat pelt (fur) is not destroyed by the bullet. Small entry hole, explosion inside, but not exit wound to rip the pelt.

Hope you try one for chuck or praire dog hunting too.

Idont have a 17 Rem. but the HMR is a blast to shoot not a yote gun, but i would hunt about anything smaller. semi auto '06 10 round clips work good for coyotes.
Still junior duvy.

Ya seams like every sight talks about it on a revolving bases.I shoot way to many desert dogs to conceder using a 17 cal any thing.
Haven't sold a fur in years but the last time I tried they weren't paying much for trapped.shot with any thing was less than my gas and time.
I use mostly 6mm/243 with 80gr soft point and rip them up good.

Did you ever have a gun or caliber that you would not part with. That is how I feel about the 17 Remingtion Center Fire.


I wish Savage would come out with a model 24 rifle shotgun combo in the 17 Rem Center Fire. They Could Call It "THE FOX GUN!". LOL
