      Although a 22 magnum is a good round. I would opt for the 17 hmr, it is like a little stick of dynamite. It is also an up-and-coming round that I think will establish itself right next to the .22. But the down side is that bullets cost more and so does the rifle. I guess it all depends on the money you are looking to spend and what you want to hunt with it. But if money is not a concer... 17 hmr

        Close call. .22 WMR can be cheaper to shoot. Fun factor goes to the .17HMR. Very accurate. Less chance of ricochet.

        But, I am really curious how the Hornady .22 WMR VMax affects performance and fun factor. Would be nice to get a .22WMR that shoots both rounds well.

        Ruger M77 is a great rifle in both calibers. People complain about the triggers but my M77/17 was fine.

              Take a look at the CZ 452 American. It is available in every rimfire option out there. Excellent rifles at a reasonable price. The Ruger as mentioned by MLH is also an excellent rifle. Can't say anthing bad about the SAKO Quad except that it is a bit pricy!

                i would go with a 17, they dont cost that much more to shoot, about $2 more a box than 22mags. and it will hold up for about 300 yards, there has never been a 22 made that would shoot that far.

                  Depends what you are using it for. I would go with a 17 HMR.

                    .17 is too small a caliber in my book and I will never own one. Go with .22 Mag.

                      I would go with a semi-auto ruger rifle in 17 HMR.
