I have been shooting a 17 Remington for probably 10-12 years now. I shoot the 20 grain hornady zombie max bullets at 4196 fps.  Flattens coyotes.  Less runaways than my 223's.  Vaporizes pigeons!

If I go East for coyotes, and plan to save pelts, I take my 17 Remington.  They go ker-flop, and have an itty bitty entrance hole and never an exit.  That little pill just explodes inside.  They do have a limited range though...makes you a better caller to get them closer. 

There is a couple things I don't like about the 17 Rem though;  if you have big paws...reloading sucks!  Also, brass is hard to find.  I had a really good shooting upper on an AR, and sold it because I hate brass catchers on a calling rifle, and so I lost more brass than I found.

Love all the 17's for Sage Rats!
