I would suggest the 17HMR. And for anyone who has never had one! They will amaze you and at 2500 Ft. Per Second. In addition if you get a Savage, Marlin Varmint model or other good quality rifle you can expect 1/2" groups at 100 yards off a rest.
I have many High Power Rifles and enjoy shooting it as well as any. And as stated, a box of 50 runs around $12.00 at Wally World.
