17wsm any experience?

has anybody had any experience with the 17wsm? im looking for something more hard hitting for coyotes because I can only use rimfire in my area. ive used 22wmr and 17hmr and am not satisfied with the knockdown power. it will also be used as a woodchuck gun. thanks

I've heard good things. I think it would work well, although that would probably be the "weakest" round I would use... If you know what I mean. I think that bullet going around 3000 fps will do some damage.
That Savage BMAG rifle would be a good, cheap rifle to get too. Handled one at the store the other day, very light and handy feeling.
