IT is here to stay. as a rim fire enthusiast, I have the 17 HMR, 22 LR, 22 WMR, and a 22 WRF. The WRF round is already hard to find. The 22 WMR will not be replaced by the 17 HMR.

For taking rabbits and the occasional coyote I love my 22 mag I use the hornandy 30 gr v-max and they are AWSOME!!! I had a 17 but found no real use for it except punching paper and I can do that with 223 realoads for less money so I traded it off on a 12 ga...

IMO, for a magnum rimfire, strickly target shooting or smaller game, (rabbits, squirrels, ect.) the 17HMR. if more into hunting or little larger game, (fox, coyote, raccoon, ect.) the 22WMR.

Hey axxe I have to disagree with ya pal imho the 22 mag is better for larger small game such as coyotes, fox, ect than the 17. The 22 mag u can get the 45 grain jhp

Didn't know this post was still active. Hornady has come out with a couple of really fantastic .22WMR rounds....even for some pistols: Hornady Manufacturing Company :: Ammunition :: Rimfire :: 22 WMR

After some research and experience since I posted....I am very confident the .22WMR is here to stay. Its a sweet round, relativley inexpensive to shoot and packs a nice little punch. There was just a piece on Guns and Ammo TV showing ballistic gel tests. .22WMR is approaching the penetrating power of a .380. Now thats impressive!

I have 2 22 mags and have owned 2 others. I have also owned a savage 17 hmr. My uncle has it now and he can keep it gladly. My 22 mags arent goin anywhere unless they get stolen like my 1st one did. I miss that little pump jc higgins awfully too, none of my others have been that accurate. It was minute of nickel with five shots at 100 on a fairly calm day. That was after me and my gunsmith teacher drilled and tapped it and put a scope on it though.
