The survival .17?
Would a 17.hmr take down a small white tail? 7 and 1/2" barreled single six hunter. Seems like it would be a good survival gun. Small (compared to a rifle) and could easily fit in a back back. Rugged, weather proof, tack driving accurate, won't waist meat on small to medium game.
Just a crazy musing of mine this particular evening sparked by an earlier conversation. Not talking making a Carlos Hathcock shot here....but could this dinky little fast mover really do it in a pinch? (dead on heart shot or head shot)
