The range is generally around 100 yds, give or take 50 yds. The fields I was shooting had been shot before so the dogs were skittish. Not many easy shots. The direct hits were impressive in terms of lethality and telegraphed with the tell-tale "whomp", characteristic of larger rifles. My Anschutz 1517MPR proved itself again and again. Amazing round, that 17HMR!!
I always thought it was more of a 'THWACK'. It is very unique and tells you that you had a solid hit. I have hit ground squirrels in California out to about 185 yards.

Great cartridge and accurate.
