In reference to the ethical hunting round. I bought a 17hmr barrel for my contender for small game, (rabbits, squirrel, varmints...) I have found the 17 grain vmax to cause extensive damage to the animal and ruins meat. So much so that I tried the 20 grain round for awhile and then decided to do head shot only. I cannot believe you don't think it's adequate. What have you shot with it. In my area we are limited to rimfire only for coyote and guys are wacking 35lb coyotes with the 17hmr.
