.22 short. Because you can carry more ammunition.
.22 short. Because it is just as effective with shot placement.
.22 short. Because of availability.
.22 short. Because of recoil.
.22 short. Because it costs less.
.22 short. Because it is quiet.
.22 short. Because it is more versatile.

All you need is a .22 Short to help perpetuate what other idjuts parrot is, in turn, all you need to survive. You can always crawl into the woods and live off of whatever and defend yourself. The .22 Short isn't effective enough? Let me shoot you in the pinkie with one! Ah ha -- I WIN the argument with superior logic!!!

.300 Win Mag is my choice for small game- rabbits, squirrels, annoying geckos with a British accent. It does FAR less damage to the meat.

Of course, you do not shoot the critter. You shoot just above them.

Shockwave of the bullet passing over slams them into the ground, killing them instantly, no holes in the fur.


.......except for geckos, that do not HAVE fur.....

.300 Win mag can be loaded down, but the 22 short cannot be loaded up.
Somewhere I have some records of my attempt to create a 100gr plinker load.

I feel better with a larger cartridge. The paper targets shake with fear.

Both of these cartridges are great, and both fulfill their intended purposes perfectly. BUT.....if I ever got into a GUN BATTLE, I'd want to have my .22short with me.
