as long as you understand it's limitations, then it's an awesome round. because the bullets are so light, they are very sensative to cross wind while shooting.
my choice in going with the 17 HMR over the 22 WMR was simply because i wanted something for target shooting, not hunting. not that it can't be used for hunting, but IMO the 22 WMR is better suited for hunting.
on a still day, it's like a laser beam being shot.
