Personally I see alot of oldtimers knee-jerking their answers when it comes to all rimfires. How many of those guys REALLY believe it takes a .223 to kill a 10# critter? That notion is ridiculous IMO and needs further discussion.



Now we are getting closer to understanding each other. I don't believe the blanket statement of the hummer being ONLY good for varmints. I have even gone so far as to say that in the proper hands it is capable of out doing it's original intents, the key word however is "In the right hands".

When someone says (paraphrasing)"I have done the research, and know the popular consensus, but want to ask anyway". This lends me to think that they want to kick the hornets nest and watch as others deal with it. Could I be wrong? Absolutely. But I bet someone is having a nice laugh as we set here and point fingers.

man for a guy that says "dont pretend to know me or my intentions" you sure do a [beeep] of a lot of it yourself, how about taking some of your own medicine?? i did SOME research, only found SOME info. figured i would ask more experienced people (as i am new to the sport) but apparently i guess you have to know everything about predator hunting before being respected or taken seriously

LOL great thread.

I enjoy spirited discussions.

My advice is shoot the Hummer at some fox and see if you think it's up to the task. Imo you'll enjoy the caliber(immensely) and it'll be effective for you as long as you're not trying to pop them at excessive ranges.

Good luck.

I dont think you no longer need help in this....every good thing about the hummer and every bad thing was covered!. some spoke of how they personally felt towards it and some gave Facts. you have opinion on ammo, distance, I even gave you a link with comparisons on it.

the first page was more than enough info for your question, so in reality you should move on as well!.

happy hunting

Lonnie

I don't think you will have any problems killing a fox with a .17hmr. I killed one with my 22lr at about 80 yards drt.
