I know this one exists: http://www.survivalmonkey.com/forum/firearms/13847-anybody-have-pet-22-magnum.html What I am curious about is performance between .17 HMR and .22 WMR. I read this by chuckhawk and it has me leaning towards WMR: Compared: .17 HMR and .22 WMR (Magnum) I guess my thought process is if I have to shoot something bigger, the WMR will outperform the HMR. The popularity has really taken off with the 17. Accuracy is it's best point from everyone I talked to. Keeping in mind that I only shoot things for food, not sport, which is better for small game hunting? The .22 WMR weighs twice as much. The .17 is more accurate and has twice the range. Any opinions? My second question is which model should I get? Wally World has a Savage and Marlin. These seem to be the most common. I don't think Ruger has produced a 10/22 in mag for some time. What I don't like about most of the ones I've see is the weight/length. I prefer a shorter 16"-18" with a lighter profile and slimmer stock. All the ones I've looked at are more like a big game rifle in size with a small game chambering. Any opinions?
