    I have a question for you. You said you have a 17 Rem. Do you have or can you get 25gr. Hornady HP loaded over 4000 FPS.? Now I have the 17 HH, I reload 25gr. HP under 3000FPS. I have NO fur damage what so ever on Reds , Greys, and Coyotes. I have shot them from 15yds out past 170yds one shot drop. NO BS I swear to GOD. I know you can not reload yours under 3000FPS. But I watched a guy shoot 3 or 4 Grey fox at close range using a 17 Rem, he said he was using 25gr. Hornady HP and pushing them over 4000FPS. Maybe because the jacket on the Hornady holds together long enough for penetration and then desinagrates because of the speed. So you end up with small entry, with a violent explosion to the vitals only. I know if it was a polymer tip or heavier jacket, I would not believe it. What do you think?
