Do you have a chart like this comparing the 22 mag to the 17 mag? Comparing the 22lr to the 17 mag is kinda apples to oranges.
I would think that the 17 being lighter would lose speed faster therefore allowing it to be effected by the wind more than the 22 mag with the heavier bullet which should retain its velocity longer, however the 17 is faster to start with.
