Re: Ultimate Squirrel cartridge ?
I loved my 17hmr and loved to hunt with it before I traded my 17hmr for my over under 20 gage. I also had a mach 2. I traded that for a treestand a few years ago.
I enjoyed shooting my 17hmr because it was such a tack driver and was just a beautiful gun.
But I avree with you that the 17 mach2 is the best squirrel cartridge. I have shot squirrels with that gun in the 80 yard range, and have shot them close and never blew them in half as much as I did with the 17hmr. Only down fall with the mach2 is that if it is windy, and you are taking a bit farther shots its accuracy gos way down.
