Ive looked into 22 mags but .17 has higher velocity and better round selections.
Just want some veiws and suggestions
.22WMR, 30gr Ballistic Tip or +V HP, 33gr Ballistic tip, 40gr standard FMJ/ HP.
.17HMR 17gr Ballistic tip, 20gr HP game point
Autos in .22WMR or .17HMR both suck.
A .22 mag is the better choice!
I have both and the .22 mag w/ a 40gr CCI maxi Mag HP wins hands down at 100 yard range.
I have the same issue here in S.NH w/ restrictions. A shotgun w/ #4 lead is great out to 40 yards.
Browning A-bolt .22WMR w/ 3-9x42mm Bushnell.(Bottom in Pick)
Marlin 917V .17HMR w/ 6-24x40mmAO
