.17 hmr compared to the 30-06
 
was wondering in terms of stoping power how much does .17 give up compared to the 30-06

About 2500 ft. lbs of energy difference give or take a few. There is no comparison between the two. The 06 wins that fight.

Difference is same as difference between a Mo-ped and a Mack Truck.

The 17 HMR is a rimfire shooting a 17 or 20 grain bullet. The 30-06 is a centerfire shooting a 150-220 grain bullet. .17 HMR has about 245 ft lbs muzzle energy, the 30-06 about 2,900. .17 is a great target round at 100 meters, and kills prairie dogs. The 30-06 is a great target round at 900 meters, and kills moose, elk, and small armored vehicles.
