Which .17 for under 100yds? You talking the centerfires, or HMR?.17 for anything under 100 yards. My go to for coyote is a 22-250 with a 50gr. You'll be limited in ammo availability unless you reload or know someone that does. Good luck.

Hey Bruce! In your opinion... If you only had your .17 HMR along with you at the time, just how close would you want a yote to be before you pulled the trigger?A .17HMR is fine for bobcat and fox for up close and personal shots but for yotes & lions a 22-250 or 222 swift is ideal within 200 yards.

Hrmm... yeah I was thinking about 80yds. Judging from when I make bunnies do backflips at 80yds with that .17 HMR I'd figure that'd be about the limit. Still has a good amount of "Pop!" at that distance.Killed one at 50 yards, don't think I'd wanna go beyond 75-100 yards as the ballistics just don't support it. Even at 50 the songdog ran 140 yards before dropping. It was tense watching him bolt off. Couldn't see the impact (perfect shot) and thought I had missed as he lit out at warp speed. A 22-250 will get em doing donut holes or drop DRT.
