I have a few marlins but all .30-30, id like to try smaller calibers. I hunt with a .22mag all the time and its great, but I just want the .17 for a new fun caliber. Plus, I inherited all my guns, and there all right-hand, so its only right to get new left hand bolts lol. Like my grandpa always said "you can never have enough guns"

Not to mention the cost of the ammunition is reasonable. I would highly recommend the 17 HMR for target, and light varmint shooting.

And wind def plays a big factor in the little 17. I stopped shooting once the wind got up around 5mph. I dident want to start making adjustments that were unneeded. All in all for a gun that cost 260 im more than happy with it. And here she is!!

I have a Marlin XT -22MR. It is very accurate and problem free. I shot a coyote in the head at 30 yards with a Hornady Vmax. The exit wound almost took the side of his head off. The 22 wmr suits my needs more than a 17 hmr. I hope you enjoy your rifle as much as I enjoy mine.

I have a Browning A-bolt Gold Medalion in .22WMR. When my boys were a bit younger I wanted a vermin gun (woodchucks, weasel, fox) that they could use and come out without using my Browning (selfish, I know). I would also feel comfortable w/ them taking to a freinds house or out without me. They love the Marlin 917V. Very accurate little rig. I'm not sure there is an inaccurate .17.

Sorry, had to take a phone call. The .22WMR and .17HMR may be similar, they are both fun, buy my A-bolt will out shoot my Marlin .17 all day long. They both fill the same nitch. My Browning is more of a carry in the field gun, while the Marlin is great for an ambush. Both wear Bushnell Trophy scopes, the old one w/ amberglow optics. Both fun and cheap to shoot.

For 17HMR I got a Marlin VRX wearing a BSA Sweet 17, and for 22mag I have a Ruger 77/22 Magnum All Weather wearing a Simmons 44 Mag.
For the regular 22LR, I have a Savage AXIS(only 300 made for 2011) wearing a Bushnell Banner(4-12x40) and a Ruger 10/22 wearing a Burris FullfieldII(3-9x40) that is only found in the Burris Scope Combo Packs.
