I've tried the 17hmr on groundhogs. The hog was thirty yards, quartering towards. The shot entered just behind the jawbone and into the chestcavity. Since it was a hog, no dressing was required and couldn't say what happened inside, only that the bullet never exited. IMO, the 17 is fine for small varmint, it shoots fairly flat, but is bucked by the wind. I'll keep mine, and use it accordingly. When the wind is up, guess the 30/06 fills the gap. Definately know when you hit a hog with it.
