I've shot them at 60 with a 22lr without issue. Again, we're talking about a 10-12# critter, not a 125# wolf. Shot placement rules.

In my opinion this is the problem with the 17HMR. You run the risk of killing the animal and not recovering it. No blood trail with such a small bullet. I think the 17WSM will be the perfect combo with a little more speed and a little heavier bullet. If you want to try I'd keep it under 100yds. and go for a head shot it you can.
