I have a few favorite 22 plinkers/hunters.
In the rifle dept. it's a toss up between the highly accurate Ruger 10/22 Target with the factory hammer forged barrel that I bought the first year production and my fast handling Remington 552 bdl speedmaster that I picked up back in 87'
As far as the 22 handgun plinkers?
I have a blast with a Ruger mkII competition target model,off the bench scoped the mkII competition will out shoot a lot of 22 rifles,it actually out shoots my 552 speedmaster from the bench.
Reminton 552 BDL Speedmaster
50 yard 10 shot group,shot from the 10/22T off the bench.
