Question .17 HMR questions



Log in to see fewer ads
Does a .17 HMR rifle have enough power to puncture 1/4" glass? Or how about a car tire?

Doesn't sound like you are planning anything wise. I wouldn't be shooting tires or glass with the HMR.

Well a CO2 BB gun is capable of shattering a car windshield (don't ask me how I know) so I would say the HMR has that covered. As far as a tire, I have no idea and don't plan on finding out anytime soon. But if your looking for something to stop a vehicle I'm sure there are plenty of better choices than a 17HMR. Nothing against it, I love my 17HMR rifles but I'm not using them to protect a military base or embassy.

We're not supposed to give advice about doing dangerous stuff, so maybe we should not ask for advice about it either.
