Thats a stretch for the caliber.
Maybe this guy is like Doc Stone
and the 20 cal. He was told on
Accurate Shooter that he couldnt
kill a 1K PD. He proved them wrong
w/a 14?? yd w/picture proof. LDS

Never say never.

According to my ballistic program, a Hornady 17gr. .17 HMR, starting out at 2636 fps, and zero'd at 100 yards, would have the following at 1000 yards....
520 fps........10 ft lbs of energy ..... and would drop 1486 inches at 1000 yards..

Good Luck.....

If you go to his Face Book page he tells everything with photos and all. Seems like I read his reloads per 50 are around $37. The numbers Dave quoted are very close to what he has on his page.

I think that I would have a problem holding approx. 125 feet over my target. And if I did happen to hit it, 10 ft lbs of energy, the bullet would bounce off of anything it hit...
