Go out the 17 WSM on the weekend.
The first two shots (outside circled area) were scope adjustments and than the 5 shot group is in the circled area.
First 4 were touching and the last was a bit of flyer but still not too bad. Shots were at 100 yards and group size was just under an inch. If I hadn't taken that last shot the group would have been a lot closer to 1/2 inch. Pretty decent for a rimfire considering the shots were taken off shooting sticks and not a bench. Rifle was a Savage B-mag target with a floated barrel, bedded action and Boyd's laminated thumbhole stock. Accutrigger and barrel was factory Savage 21 inch heavy stainless. Scope was a Scorpion Red Hot 17, 4-12x by 40. Ammo was Hornady 20 grain v-max.
Based on those results I would have no problem taking head shots out to 100 yards (no/light wind) on a coyote if I was shooting off sticks.
Gun is basically this (this is a stock image - don't have a photo of mine loaded to the computer):
