.17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire (.17 HMR) Revolvers
The .17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire (.17 HMR) has gained great popularity since its release in the last twenty years, thanks to its status as one of the fastest, most accurate rimfire cartridges available for hunting and plinking. Revolvers are the most popular handgun for the .17 HMR, and these firearms make for excellent small game hunting weapons. The .17 HMR can take out racoon, rabbit, possum, and more from up to 200 yards. It can demolish smaller game such as squirrels too, but it's a bit too high-energy if you are hoping to preserve the bodies. While some hunters have used the .17 HMR for larger game such as coyotes at closer ranges, this takes a lot of skill and proximity of 50 yards at most. The .17 HMR also makes for a great plinking pistol, thanks to its accuracy, quiet fire, and speed. The only downside is that it is more susceptible to wind drift, so if you are shooting in windy conditions, you'll likely see your accuracy suffer.
